Abstract

Hybrid panels (HY) for joint production of thermal and electrical energy are available on the market. The main contribution of this work is to evaluate the performance of hybrid systems and to determine the field of application. Mathematical models of panels are used to evaluate thermal and electrical behaviour. Software produced by the authors calculates the energy production of these devices in several operating situations; a comparison to that of photovoltaic (PV) and thermal (TH) systems is performed. Moreover, the economic validity of such an investment is evaluated. Finally, a simplified criterion has been developed to calculate the best subdivision of the available deployment surface among TH, PV and HY panels. © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
