Hi all,

In order to include PCM effect in EnergyPlus and run the simulation, either the technical datasheet or enthalpy-temperature figure is needed to operate the simulation. Are there any sources available that contain this information for different PCM types?. Almost all the companies I contacted did not share their datasheet.

Any recommendation is appreciated.

i have tha same problem, i only found the enthalpy for RUBITHERM and Microtek till now

but i still having the problem with data required for hysteresis effect

From Ributherm products I contacted them, it seems only RT-21 product is able to be used in building applications. In the line with Puretemp,I am not sure if all those are usable in building applications as well, maybe only those with melting temp between 20-25 are suitable for building usage. Those with very high or low temperatures are more suitable for industrial usage.

There is still a big lack of building application PCM datasheet.
