In this article, mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of phase change materials (PCMs) used as latent heat thermal energy storage in a solar cooker have been conducted. The PCM to store thermal energy is packed in many small hollow cylinders and placed in a larger cylinder tank. Heat transfer fluid (HTF) which flows parallel to the PCM cylinder is used to distribute heat from the solar collector...
