The primary goal of current research is the expedition of the discharging process with the use of Al2O3-nanoparticles and Y-shaped fins. The nanoparticle can be dispersed in a PCM to eliminate the limitations of them. Newton-Raphson scheme with a combination of Finite element method were implemented to discuss the novel outcomes of the present analysis. A powerful numerical approach is involved in simulating time-dependent phenomena in a complex geometry. Outcomes prove that dispersing nanoparticles is a good way of enhancing the discharge rate. As the radius of nanoparticle augments up to 20 nm, total energy decreases and profile has been converged in lower time. A comparison reveals that the outputs have excellent agreement with the experimental results.
