Abstract In the current paper, the thermal and electrical performance of photovoltaic (PV)- Trombe wall (PV-TW) used in Tibetan residential buildings is investigated, and two performance influencing factors are analysed. Based on the original model, the PV-TW's model for residential buildings is updated, and then a simple design is performed for a given residential building in Tibet. The results show that the indoor temperature increases linearly, whereas the electrical efficiency remains… CONTINUE READING
