Invention System and method for thermal management using integrated Vapor Chamber and Thermal Energy Storage (VCTES) system and encapsulated Phase Change Materials (PCMs) to absorb pulsated heated loads. Background Researchers at UCF have developed a highly effective thermal management system using a vapor chamber and thermal energy storage (VCTES) system. The design encapsulates the Phase Change Materials (PCM) multiple times, increasing the temporary heat storage capability of the thermal
