RP1001: Journal Article: Full optimisation and sensitivity analysis of a photovoltaic–thermal (PV/T) air system linked to a typical residential building

This paper examines the optimisation of a PV/T air collector with a fixed length and width (L = 5m, W= 3.6 m) linked to the mechanical air distribution system of a typical residential building. A methodology is developed for the full optimisation of the rate of effective thermal output ðQ_ eff Þ across a wide range of the air mass flow rate per collector unit areas (m_ =Ac = 0–0.07 kg/s m2).
