3.5. Performances of a PV/T Collector With Water Heating in Buildings
In the solar thermal system, conventional electrical energy is used to circulate HTF through a collector. If both types of collectors (thermal and PV) are combined in a hybrid unit (PV/T collector), the use of conventional electrical energy can be avoided for circulating HTF through a collector. The PV/T collector in building can produce thermal and electrical energy simultaneously.
