Solar PVT Panel
We are proud to introduce the Solar PVT Panel to its line of high quality, solar energy products. Its revolutionary design combines photovoltaic energy generation with thermal heating capabilities in one powerful, cost effective module.Solar PVT Panel-Hybrid Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermo into a panel,producing electricity effectivly and warm water at same time in a panel with 0 cost.It stands the developing trend of future solar PV panels.
Smartclima Solar PVT Panel(Photovoltaic Thermal panels), have PV panels on top of a flat thermal module that captures the superheated air and either turns it into hot water, or flows the warmed air through the house for heating.Its revolutionary design combines photovoltaic energy generation with thermal heating capabilities in one powerful, cost effective module.It require an attic space with a south facing sloped roof.
The panel delivers substantially higher efficiencies compared to other PV panels. A PV panel’s performance can be degraded when subjected to extremes in operating temperature. But our Solar PVT panel eliminates this problem through the use of an integrated aluminium heat exchanger with a water/glycol mix. This heating exchange capability can effectively cool or warm the solar cells equally when needed, keeping the module’s temperature at a constant 35℃. At this temperature yield reductions due to excessive heat in the summer are prevented, improving the system’s electrical output by 15-20% compared to standard PV panels. During the winter, heated water can be pumped through the module quickly melting away snow and exposing the modules to sunlight, ensuring uninterrupted power generation.
Background & Principle
Typical PV modules have a solar conversion efficiency up to 15%. What happens to the rest of the sun’s energy that shines on the panels? Most of it is converted into heat energy, which normally is lost and provides no value to the system owner. As well, the heat build-up behind PV modules reduces the electrical output by 0.4-0.5% for every 1°C above its rated output temperature, which is 25°C (77°F). For every 1°C (1.8°F) above 25°C, the electrical output drops by 0.4 to 0.5 percent. A typical rooftop PV array may measure 55 to 75°C (131 to 167°F), which means its electrical output would fall by 12 to 25 per cent below the name plate rating. For example, a 10-kW array only generates 7.5 to 8.8 kW under these temperature conditions. A PV/T system lowers the photovoltaic temperature by 10 to 20°C (18 to 36°F), which increases the electrical output by five to 10 per cent, or an extra 0.5 to 1 kW for a 10-kW array.
Our Solar PVT panel are designed to be used in a number of residential and commercial applications. For the home, a roof-top array can generate thermal energy to supply a family’s hot water needs. It can also supply all the energy needed to supply an under-floor radiant heating system. If you own a boiler, our Solar PVT panel can supply up to 70% your existing boiler consumption needs. With the addition of a thermal storage unit, the energy generated by an Solar PVT panel array can be utilized any time; day, night or on cloudy days when the amount of available sunlight is limited. Solar PVT panel can be the foundation for a truly environmentally friendly home. Integrating a low temperature differential engine will put your home one step closer to energy independence. The energy provided by a PV-Thermal system will generate carbon free electricity, displace carbon based heating fuels such as oil and natural gas and reduce your household’s carbon footprint to a minimum.
The higher conversion efficiency and thermal capabilities of Smartclima’s Solar PVT panels make them ideal for large power generating plants and PV parks. When combined with a low temperature differential engine, a PV park owner can enjoy not only the higher efficiencies the modules provide, but also can convert the additional thermal energy into electricity, producing higher returns on investments.
