ABSTRAKT

In this paper, we have examined the effect of adding a cover glass and a metal plate to improve heat transfer and energy performance of the hybrid photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) collector. In the proposed configuration of the hybrid PV/T collector, the air goes through a double circulation below the photovoltaic module (between the metal plate and the PV module) and above (between the PV module and the glass cover). The heat balance equations are written for the adopted configuration and are numerically solved, incorporating measured climate data. The numerical model of simulation developed from this study allowed us to get a good accuracy of the results, and permitted a good evaluation of different electrical and thermal performance of the studied device (temperature distributions, power, thermal and electrical performance, etc.). The numerical results show the energy efficiency of this type of hybrid collector and its interesting utilization in energetic systems. The results presented in this study also reveal the importance of the effect of certain parameters and adopted operating conditions (sky temperature, air inlet temperature, temperature of PV cells, air flow and solar radiation) on the performance of the hybrid collector.
