In this work, different PCMs are studied thermally and structurally, selected the optimum material and a practical application of personal usage of it (cooling vests) is fabricated and analyzed for its efficiency improvement. A new method and empirical design for the replenishment or recharging of the phase changing material used inside the vests is developed by circulating cooled water obtained by adopting peltier cooling, through the vest in a designed fashion, the conventional methods for which are practically difficult in day-to-day conditions. The fabricated vest can be used to maintain an optimum temperature ranging between 60oF to 83oF at high atmospheric temperatures.
