Thermal Analysis on Photovoltaic Thermal Hybrid System with Cooling Channel with V-Baffles


This research study presents the thermal analysis of photovoltaic thermal hybrid system with cooling channel with V-baffles. Solar intensity, ambient temperature, inlet and outlet air channel temperature, glazing temperature, tedlar temperature, velocity of air inside the duct and mass flow rate of air are measured and used to calculate the thermal performance of photovoltaic thermal hybrid system. The maximum thermal, equivalent thermal and overall thermal efficiency of the PVT system with cooling channel with V-baffles are found to be 18.9%, 36.5% and 48.8% respectively. The present experimental performances is found to be in reasonable agreement with the earlier published results.
