A latent heat storage module with rapid charging and discharging rates has been developed. The heat storage module consisted of horizontal cylindrical capsules filled with three types of PCM with different melting temperatures. A numerical model has been developed to predict the transient behavior of the heat storage module. Both the experimental and numerical results showed some improvements in charging and discharging rates by use of a "three-type" PCM.
