Abstract:

The work presents the cooling techniques to increase power output of PV panel with the use of a phase change material (PCM) and Wick materials. The work has been focused on the experimental setup and simulation heat extraction from the PV panel with the use of ANSYS software. A modification of CIS PV module was made with a eutectic mixture (70:30) of Calcium chloride hexa hydrate (70%) and Iron (III) chloride hexa hydrate PCM. The experimental results show that the maximum temperature difference on the surface of PV panel without PCM was 9oC higher than on a panel with PCM in a period of one day. Final results show that the electricity production of PV-PCM panel was higher for 96.55 Whr in a particular day of experimentation. As validation of the passive cooling technique of PV-PCM, the PV module are packed with cotton and jute wick materials separately in the back surface and tested. And the result shows that the maximum temperature difference on the PV panel without wick material is 2oC higher than jute wick material and 11oC higher than cotton wick material in a period of one day. Referring to experimental results the calculation of the maximum and average increase in power gain of 141.77 Whr for cotton wick-PV module and 33.28 Whr for jute wick-PV module.
