Abstract

36 kinds of mixed carbonate molten salts were prepared by mixing potassium carbonate, lithium carbonate, sodium carbonate in accordance with different proportions. The data of melting point and latent heat are measured by the analysis of DSC curves of 36 kinds of salts, which show that the majority of ternary carbonate’s melting points are close at around 400 °C. 24 kinds of eutectic molten salts were selected among 36 kinds of molten salts. With high latent heat, ternary carbonate salt has the potential to be employed for phase change thermal storage. The costs for phase change thermal storage of 24 kinds of carbonate salts are calculated. Finally, 13 kinds of ternary carbonate salts with lower cost for phase change thermal storage are recommended, where there are 6 kinds of mixed carbonates have the considerably larger latent heat of melting.
