It is important to improve the energy charging and discharging efficiency of thermal energy storage systems to help mitigate energy crises and environmental concerns. The thermal storage is a key component of many energy storage methods. The purpose of this research is to optimize the thermodynamic properties of a Tree-like Branching Fin for use in increasing the LHTES device’s thermal efficiency. There are three types of heat storage methods: “sensible heat thermal energy storage (SHTES); latent heat thermal energy storage (LHTES); and thermochemical energy storage (TCHS).” A CFD model that accounts for the system’s thermal behavior is used to conduct the study. The thermal transfer phenomenon is characterized by the measured temperature and the solid fraction.
