Abstract: In this Article, the Comparative Analysis of Different heat Transfer Mediums and Mechanisms are discussed in the context of cooling solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Cooling is done through active and passive methods. Various researchers in recent years investigate air, water, nanofluids and phase change materials or combination among these. The overall thermo-electric performance of photovoltaic/thermal hybrid systems and concentrated PV systems depends on the effective thermal management of PV panels. Cooling of PV panels is beneficial to improve the overall performance and productive life of PV systems.
