Idea of a hybrid solution: concept:

  • Solar panel efficiency 12 –  20% at 25ºC, it decreases 0.4 – 0.9% per 1ºC, for T = 80ºC approx. 30%
  • Water collector panel efficiency 75 – 80%
  • Total efficiency of a solar panel 50 – 60%

The idea of a hybrid solution: benefits:

  • Double use of space
  • Cooling effect of photovoltaic elements < 80 ºC
  • Lower total installation cost PLN / W of usable power

The idea of a microchannel solution: benefits:

  • Zwiększenie powierzchni kontaktu medium chłodzącego z elementem chłodzonym;
  • Integracja systemu chłodzenia z elementem elektronicznym;
  • Wzrost współczynnika przejmowania ciepła dzięki zmniejszeniu wymiaru charakterystycznego kanału.

Expected results

  • Integration of solar and collector parts & nbsp; – reduction of silicon / liquid thermal resistance, weight reduction
  • Introduction of microchannel converters – increased efficiency of heat removal, reduction of liquid outlet temperature, weight reduction
  • Difference in inlet and outlet temperatures < 10ºC
  • Increase in the efficiency of the photovoltaic part ≈ 30%
  • Panel cost ≈ 900 PLN
