Abstract: Solar photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) is an integrated system that produces both electrical and thermal energy simultaneously consist of PV module with heat extracting media for example water or air. The performance of the photovoltaic (PV) module depends upon the operating temperature of the PV module. The problem of non-uniform cooling of PV module can be solved by controlling the operating temperature of PV module systematically therefore, an automatic cooling system using Arduino integrated with PV module has been proposed. A theoretical model in term of heat transfer process analysis and simulation was developed to predict overall thermal-electrical conversion performances of Photovoltaic-Thermal (PVT) water system. The experimental validation of the used thermal and electrical model has been carried out by measured data. The result shows there is a good agreement between experimental and simulated results. This paper presents the electrical and thermal performance evaluation of Photovoltaic Module Integrated with Automatic Cooling System Using Arduino and comparing its performance with conventional solar PV system.
