Abstract

The enhanced conductive lauric acid (LA) phase change material was prepared with expanded graphite, aluminum powder and carbon fiber as the thermal conductive filler and its thermal properties were tested and analyzed. The results show that expanded graphite, aluminum powder and carbon fiber thermal filler in LA phase change material does not greatly influences LA phase change temperature. The phase change temperature of the LA phase change material is between 45°C -45.9°C when the mass fraction of thermal conductive filler is 2%, 5%, 10% and 20% and the LA / EG composite phase change material has a low "leakage" threshold. The thermal conductivity reached 1.478 W/m∙K when the EG mass fraction reached 30%. In addition, thermal control system of solar cells was designed using LA / EG phase change material as the thermal control material, and the experimental research on optimal configuration of solar cells and phase change material was carried out. The results show that phase change material has obvious control effect on solar cell temperature, reducing the temperature by 7°C.
