Abstract :

In this communication, energy matrices of semi transparent photovoltaic thermal (SPVT) water collector has been evaluated for two different configurations namely collectors partially (Case A) and fully (Case B) covered by PV modules. The study has been carried out under constant collection temperature mode for industrial applications based on overall thermal energy and exergy output of SPVT water collector. Total carbon credit earned by SPVT water collector has also been evaluated. It has been observed that the energy payback time (EPBT) and energy production factor (EPF) are lower and higher respectively for partially covered SPVT water collector (case A). This can be considered as the best option in comparison with fully covered SPVT water collector (case B) from thermal energy point of view. Further unit cost of thermal energy and exergy is reduced by about 5% due to effect of carbon credits earned.
