The paper presents theoretical assumptions and implementation of the T-history method, which was used to estimate the thermal capacity and latent heat for phase change materials (PCMs). The research equipment, measurement system and obtained results were discussed. The T-history method was used to investigate the heating and cooling process of two PCMs, sold under the trade names of RT15 and RT18. Obtained results were compared with the manufacturer’s data. The analysis of the research results has led to the conclusion that the presented measurement method made it possible to perform a preliminary verification of the enthalpy–temperature dependency of the PCMs. The method can be also used for studying different commercial materials and estimating this dependency for materials of yet unknown properties.
