Full optimisation and sensitivity analysis of a photovoltaic–thermal (PV/T) air system linked to a typical residential building

This paper examines the optimisation of a PV/T air collector with a fixed length and width (L=5 m, W= 3.6 m) linked to the mechanical air distribution system of a typical residential building. A methodology is developed for the full optimisation of the rate of...

Development of a roof mounted PV system to a PV/T air system

Photovoltaic systems are increasingly being used in residential buildings. The absorbed heat of PV panels is normally dissipated to the ambient air via a natural convection and radiation. This paper will describe how to convert a PV system to a PV/T system, to make it...

Channel depth, air mass flow rate and air distribution duct diameter optimization of photovoltaic thermal (PV/T) air collectors linked to residential buildings

Photovoltaic thermal (PV/T) air collector design requires an accurate determination of key parameters such as the channel depth and the air mass flow rate. This paper focuses on PV/T air collectors linked to an air distribution system with the aim of optimizing the channel depth...
