3.6. Performances of a Hybrid PV/T-Solar System for Residential Applications

The main aim of this study is the assessment of energy efficiency for a residential system comprising commercially available PV/T panels, therefore capable of electricity generation and DHW production simultaneously. The study is performed for three locations in Europe with entirely different climatic characteristics [62].

3.6.1. System Configuration

The hybrid solar system (Fig. 3.43) is designed to produce DHW for a single family household and to supply the electricity generated by its PV component to the grid. The hybrid solar system consists of liquid glazed flat-plate PV/T collectors, an inverter, a single cylindrical water storage tank with a capacity of 300 L and ...
