Performance of a photovoltaic/thermal solar air heater: Effect of vertical fins on a double pass system
The steady state effect of vertical fins is assessed on a photovoltaic/thermal solar air heater having a double pass configuration in which fins are placed in the lower channel perpendicular to the
Performance of a hybrid PV/T double-pass finned plate solar air heater
The hybrid (PV/T) double flow pass air heater with finned absorber was investigated theoretically. In this model, the air flows through the heater from the upper flow duct and comes out from the
Performance Evaluation of PV/T Air Collector Having a Single-Pass Double-Flow Air Channel and Non-Uniform Cross-Section Transverse Rib
In the present work, the electrical and thermal performances of a newly designed PV/T (photovoltaic/thermal) air collector, which was proposed and fabricated by the author, have been investigated
Enhanced Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow in a Channel Behind a Photovoltaic Panel in a Hybrid Photovoltaic/Thermal System
Thermal large eddy simulation (TLES) of air flow in a simple channel is being carried out to understand the insight physics and possibility of enhancing heat transfer in a photovoltaic/thermal
Performance study of a dual-fluid photovoltaic thermal collector with reflection and refraction solar concentrators
The temperature of a photovoltaic (PV) plate increases with increasing absorbed irradiation, leading to degradation of the electrical efficiency of the PV cells. The heat can be dissipated by air
Performance comparison of single and double pass PV/T solar collectors integrated with rectangular plate fin absorber
Solar panel can act as a medium for transforming sunlight into electrical energy. Nevertheless, not all of the sunlight received on this device can be converted into electrical energy and the
Effect of Using Packing Material on the Performances of the Double Pass Photovoltaic-Thermal (PVT) Air Heater
The current work aims to demonstrate the effect of the packing material on the performance of the double pass (PVT) solar air heater in terms of energy and exergy. In addition, the influence of
Evaluating the Performance of a Modified Solar Air Heater With Pierced Cover and Packed Mesh Layers
An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the thermal efficiency of a modified solar air heater. In the current design, air enters the collector through holes in front glass, passes through


Mathematical Model of Double Pass Photovoltaic Thermal Air Collector with Fins
Problem statement: The efficiency of photovoltaic cells is generally temperature dependent (efficiency decrease when the temperature of the photovoltaic cells increase). This problem can be solved by
