Abstract A photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) solar air heater with a double pass configuration and vertical fins in the lower channel is investigated. The fins are arranged perpendicular to the direction of air flow to enhance the heat transfer rate and efficiency. Air enters the upper channel of the air heater and subsequently flows to the lower channel in the opposite direction. A comprehensive steady state analysis is performed, including energy balances for the upper glass cover, the superstrate… CONTINUE READING
