Utilization of Heat from PV-Air Collectors in Residential Buildings
Rohan Vijay Vichare  | Sai Kishan Tanguturi
Abstract: The purpose of this project is to find and evaluate suitable models of a PV air collector for building integrated applications. Especially the focus is based on the models developed by TRNSYS and POLYSUN simulation tools. In this report, two types of PV air collectors are explained. One is normal PV air collector and the second is building integrated type collector. As PV air collector is a niche area in solar thermal, very little amount of research has been done so far in this very area. This project has done in two stages. In the first stage, literature survey was done and in the second stage, simulation was done on the available models. The collectors found were categorised based on their type (Flat plate, concentrated), parameters and inputs. One can choose a collector among the available models based on their need. This project can be used as a starting point for those who want to work with PV air collectors.
