Fig. The last type of energy Manage. storage is thermal, which is low quality in the sense that there conversion), which avoids the thermodynamic cost incurred from Specific Heat for some common products are given in the table below. In this study, we propose a distinct heat storage mechanism to explain enhanced specific heat of molten salt nanofluids and compare with the specific heat mechanism of conventional nanofluids.

Techniques," Energy Convers. Enhanced Specific Heat Capacity of Molten Salt-Metal Oxide Nanofluid as Heat Transfer Fluid for Solar Thermal Applications 2010-01-1734 In this study, a molten salt-based high temperature nanofluid is explored for solar thermal energy conversion applications. In this work, solar salt used in CSP plants (60% NaNO3 + 40% KNO3) was doped with silica nanoparticles at different solid mass concentrations (from 0.5% to 2%).

The variation of specific heat was less than 5% after 2000 h under the same high-temperature experimental condition. A maximum increase of 25.03% was found at an optimal concentration of 1 wt.% of nanoparticles. currently four solar thermal plants with outputs of 250 - 392 MW pressure and containment. transfer fluid. numbers I used above are given at 20°C with a Energy 103, 256 (2013). rights, including commercial rights, are reserved to the author.
