The invention relates to mixtures for accumulation of thermal energy in the form of heat of phase transformation or heat generated by chemisorption of oxygen to the use of these mixtures as a means of accumulation of solar energy.

Increasing attention is paid to the use of renewable energy sources, particularly solar energy. In this regard, an important geographical latitude of the consumer and the number of Sunny days. A typical diagram of the solar power installation contains an element that absorbs solar radiation, the irradiated surface is protected by a translucent material, and the shadow side is covered by insulation. Inside the element is a circuit with a liquid coolant. Solar energy is absorbed by the surface element and the heat due to the mechanism of heat conduction in the summer, is transferred to the water coolant, and in the winter time is used for this purpose non-freezing fluid, such as antifreeze. To accumulate the necessary amount of heat in this installation uses water accumulator, which contains a large mass of water. From the energy point of view, the lack of such energy conversion is a slow mechanism of heat transfer by conduction from the element to the coolant. In addition, the level of temperature, get in the coolant due to solar energy is low, the density of the accumulated energy per unit mass of fluid is limited, and therefore the value of the stored thermal energy can be achieved by selecting the mass of the heat carrier.

To increase the efficiency of solar collectors offer different techniques. So, in the author's certificate of the USSR No. 868282, IPC3F 24 J 3/02, published 30.09.81, offers selective multilayer coating containing two layers, one of which is executed in the form of a film of aluminum oxide, the pores of which are filled with particles of metal type Nickel. The other layer is made in the form of a film of tin dioxide and is the first in the course of the sun's rays, and between the layers there is an additional bonding layer in the form of a film of hydrated aluminum oxide. Direct absorption of the rays and solar energy conversion into heat is transferred to the coolant (water).

The disadvantage of this solar collector is a low energy density per unit mass of fluid.

Known solar battery (USSR author's certificate No. 1537977, IPC5F 24 J 2/34, publ. 23.01.90 g)containing a thermally insulated housing with a translucent wall, located by the incident radiation, and thermal insulation article is ncoi, located on the opposite side, and the cavity of the housing is filled with the heat storage medium, undergoes a phase transformation. In the cavity of the housing parallel to the translucent wall mounted heat-conductive transparent partitions with the formation of several layers of thermal storage medium, and the temperature of the phase change thermal storage medium each subsequent layer in the direction from the translucent wall below the previous one, and the width of the layer in the same direction.

The disadvantage of this battery is the complexity of its use.

The closest technical solution to the claimed thermal storage is the mixture for accumulation and utilization of the heat of phase transformation (Patent RU №2104291, IPC 6 09 To 5/06, publ. 10.02.98 year), including magnesium nitrate, uranyl and lithium nitrate at a specific mass ratio.

The inventive heat-retaining mixture contains magnesium nitrate, and uranyl nitrate lithium mass ratio 86-81÷14-19 (preferably eutectic mixture mass ratio 83,7÷16,3).

The method of obtaining heat-retaining mixture comprises melting a mixture of magnesium nitrate uranyl (heat of fusion 100-135 j/g) and lithium nitrate in a weight ratio of 86-81÷14-19 in closed containers when the degree of filling is not bol is e 70% of its volume.

On GGS-diagram of this mixture of salts consisting of 83,7 parts by weight of Mg(NO3)2·6H2Oh and 16.3 parts by weight of LiNO3there is only accurate maximum value in the range from approximately 71 to 78°With the Central point of 75.6°C. the Heat of fusion calculated by summing the maximum values, which is 171,5 is j/g

The disadvantage of this mixture is that the mixture in the absorption of heat changes the state of aggregation and prolonged use changes are detected critical points of phase conversion and heat of phase transformation.

The problem solved by the invention is the creation of a heat-retaining mixture having stable properties without changing the aggregate state, and the development of an efficient Converter of solar energy with high energy density per unit mass heat storage composition.

The problem is solved due to the heat storage material comprising a compound of the metal and optionally silicon dioxide and sodium glass. As compounds of the metal it contains VO2+xwhere x=0-0,5, and a material obtained by extrusion of a mixture of vanadium oxide composition VO2+xwhere x=0-0,5, and silicon dioxide in the presence of liquid sodium glass as a binder in the following ratio com is onenow, wt.%:

Vanadium oxide (VO2+xwhere x=0-0,5)50-82
Liquid sodium glass
(dry residue)3-5
Silicon dioxiderest

followed by curing at a temperature of 150-200°C.

In thermal storage material preferably uses the heat of phase transformation α-VO2↔β-VO2.

The heat storage material as silicon dioxide contains natural or synthetic silica.

The heat storage material can be obtained by pressing a mixture of mechanochemical-treated vanadium oxide composition VO2+xwhere x=0÷0,5, when entered grinding bodies energy in the material 45-180 kJ/g) and silicon dioxide in the presence of liquid sodium glass as a binder.

In the heat storage material is used, the heat of adsorption (desorption) of oxygen mechanochemical-treated vanadium oxide composition VO2+xwhere x=0÷0.5, when entered grinding bodies energy in the material 45-180 kJ/year

In thermal storage material can be used in the heat of phase transformation α-VO2↔β-VO2and the heat of adsorption (desorption) of oxygen fur is ohimicheskie processed vanadium oxide.

The solar energy Converter comprises a solid heat accumulator, which is made of heat-retaining material composition corresponding to the above.

Liquid sodium glass is bonded with the molded plates of any given shape. The subsequent hardening of the mixture is carried out at a temperature of 150-200°s on the air. The finished plate have a compressive strength of 40 MPa. Plate in the Converter of solar energy collected, for example, packages etc.

For energy storage with high density is proposed to use a combined mechanism without changing the aggregate state, which involves the use of heat of phase transformation in the solid and / or heat generated by chemisorption of oxygen. To improve the efficiency of solar energy conversion and accelerate heat transfer is proposed to use the Converter in which the power transmission is performed through a combined mechanism of heat conduction and radiation. A combined mechanism of energy transfer can be obtained through use as a transformative element of a mixture of absorbing and scattering material.

The scattering substance in the present invention is silicon dioxide. The conversion of solar energy into heat in this case p is oshodi simultaneously throughout the volume element through the mechanisms of thermal conductivity and volumetric reemission, and increasing the density of the stored energy is achieved by transforming element contains the dispersed component (vanadium dioxide), a substance which has a phase transition of the 1st kind. In this case, the temperature of phase transformation should be, on the one hand, sufficient for use in space heating, and on the other hand, it is achievable in terms of solar radiation.

Solar energy Converter with solid-state accumulation of thermal energy has a number of advantages in comparison with any known solutions. The main advantage of the proposed Converter of solar energy is that its temperature remains unchanged during the entire selection process heat, and the heat is set by the duration of the phase transformation.

As the dispersed components that meet the above properties, it is proposed to use

A specific example of obtaining a heat-retaining material and the solar energy Converter based on it

To ensure volumetric absorption of incident solar energy and the maximum spatial uniformity of phase transformation in the proposed Converter vanadium dioxide (working substance) VO2mixed with filler particles of silicon dioxide, which can take a ground-up glass, then add liquid sodium glass as wag the future.

The vanadium oxide may be subjected to mechanochemical treatment.

The vanadium oxide composition VO2+x(where x=0÷0,5) is subjected to mechanochemical treatment in vysokoenergeticheskom the activator planetary centrifugal type with input grinding bodies energy in the material 45-180 kJ/g, mixed with ground glass and liquid sodium glass. The ratio of the components in both versions:

VO2(VO2+x)80%,
liquid sodium glass
(in terms of dry residue)5%,

The resulting mixture is molded at a pressure of 3-10 MPa (depending on the fractional composition and humidity of the mixture), dried in air, and then hardened by heating in air atmosphere up to 150-200°C. the resulting plates are going to work items of the solar energy Converter of a given size.

For convenience drafting table in the present method uses the term "introduced in the material energy" W. for them to understand the energy transmitted grinding bodies activator to one gram of the treated mixture. Calculation of W, j/g, was carried out according to the following formula:

The calculated total heat when using the combined Converter using the heat of phase transformation and heat of adsorption-desorption of oxygen can reach 250 j/g In table 1, this exemplary embodiment is not shown, although using transducers volume of their use will be significant.

When the number of VO2less than 50% efficiency of the solar energy Converter is reduced proportionally to the reduction of mass. The increase in the content of VO2more than 82% creates difficulties in forming plates.

The reduction in the content of liquid sodium glass below 3% (calculated on dry OST the current) leads to a decrease of the compressive strength of the finished plates up to 4 MPa, increasing the number of liquid sodium glass above 5% is impractical because of the increased humidity of the mixture, which also creates difficulties in forming plates.

Reducing the temperature of curing below 150°leads to insufficient strength and water resistance of the plates, the increase above 200°increases economic costs.

As an example, let us calculate the conversion of solar energy into thermal energy for latitude Novosibirsk work item size 1 m2thickness of 0.025 m, with the content of vanadium dioxide 80% (86,78 kg)glass 11 kg (weight 2200 kg/m3). The amount of solar energy for 1 month according to [the Handbook of the climate of the USSR, issue 20, part 1, HP, Hydrometeorological publishing house, 1966] on the selected work item of the transducer is Qthe u=10,7·104kcal/m2.

A work item of the Converter under the action of solar radiation heats up to the temperature of phase transformation (72°C), then for some time without changing temperature phase transition occurs (α→β).

The amount of heat required for carrying out this process will

Qtotal=m1with1Δt+m2with2Δt+Qf

where m is the mass, C is the heat capacity, Δt is the temperature difference from the start of heating until the temperature of the phase is the first transformation, Qphasesthe heat of transformation of vanadium dioxide, the indices 1, 2 - vanadium dioxide, glass, respectively.

The calculated heat of transformation of vanadium dioxide in a work item is

Qphases=533, kcal.

The amount of heat consumed for heating of vanadium dioxide and glass temperatures of phase transformations, is

m1c1Δt=1026, kcal;

m2c2Δt=126, kcal;

QGeneral=1026,6+a 126.7+533,6=1686, kcal.

The average solar energy incident on the work item within one hour in the daytime [3], is

Since the proposed Converter of solar energy economically advantageous to operate in the regime of phase transformations, the time for performing phase transformations α→β this Converter (charge time) will be

Removing heat from the Converter of this type are most effectively implemented using convection cooling the working surfaces of the element air. The time spent on the removal of heat during the phase transformation β↔αis the ratio

Qf=α·ΔT·τcharge

where α is the coefficient of convective heat transfer (W/m2·hail), ΔT=50 - difference between the temperatures of the working element and obogrevateli the premises.

In this case, α≅10 W/m2·hail, then

τdischarge=1.06 hours

Estimate the required number of converters of solar energy for space heating, based on existing standards.

According to the accepted norms in the month of April for heating at the latitude of the city of Novosibirsk (area of 260 m2height 3 m) is consumed within 1 hour at 1 m2

n=19, kcal/m2·hour

Since the discharge time of the solar inverter is ˜1 hour, the amount of energy stored by the Converter during charging, can provide a warm area

Thus, to ensure the warmth of the premises around the clock area of 100 m2in the month of April at the latitude of Novosibirsk will need a Converter of solar energy with a total area of 70 m2.
