A Review on Hybrid Solar PV Air Cooled Module
Keywords:PV System, Thermoelectric, Hybrid, Cooling System.
The cooling of the operating area is an essential operational factor to be taken into account in order to obtain greater efficiency in the operation of photovoltaic systems. Adequate cooling can improve electrical efficiency and reduce the rate of cell damage over time, which helps maximize the life of photovoltaic modules. The excess heat dissipated by the cooling system can be used in a domestic, commercial or industrial setting. Various cooling technologies are included in the review article: hybrid photovoltaic/heating systems cooled by forced air circulation, thermoelectric cooling system, water immersion cooling technology, and improved performance of solar modules using solar cells.
