Design of Photovoltaic-Thermal (PV/T) for Building Integrated Photovoltaic Systems

Syafaruddin, Satriani Latief, and Wahyu H. Piarah
Abstract—The increasing in output efficiency will be always very challenging to photovoltaic technology. One of the methods is to utilize the thermal energy arises in the back side of PV module, called photovoltaic-thermal (PV/T). The advantage of this system is the output of electricity and thermal energy can be obtained simultaneously. In addition, the electrical efficiency can be indirectly improved since the thermal system acts as cooling system. The research utilizes the microcontroller ATmega8535 to operate pump in order to flow water through designed spiral pipe once the threshold temperature inside the heat box extraction is reached, therefore high temperature water can be observed in the outlet pipe. Several testing scenarios under clear sky and cloudy sky conditions are conducted in order to confirm the performance of our proposed system.

Index Terms—Control circuit, hybrid photovoltaic-thermal, microcontroller, thermal sensor.
