The hybrid solar collectors are designed for simultaneous generation of electricity and hot water. This solar collector is the combination of PV panel and thermal solar collector and in brief is called PVT panel. As it is known, the efficiency of conventional PV module is decreased at temperature growth, especially the effective output of electric energy is reduced at temperature on the surface of PV element higher than 50°C that is often observed during summer time in classical solar batteries, the heat in hybrid collectors is absorbed by circulating fluid to receive hot water, thereby reducing the operating temperature of element and improving its efficiency. Thus, the additional electric energy is generated. Such symbiosis allows reducing the area of installation by two times if it is necessary to use the solar collectors and PV modules on the same building at the same time.
Hybrid collector ATMOSFERA F2PV
Hybrid solar collector ATMOSFERA F2PV is the combination of solar thermal collector and polycrystalline PV module with capacity of 300 W. Collector F1PV can convert the energy of solar irradiation both into electric one to feed the electric devices, and heating one that is used for the needs of hot water supply (HWS) and heating maintenance.
Hybrid solar collectors VOLTHER®
Hybrid collector POWERVOLT W 200/500
The peculiarity of this model is that the ratio of generated heat energy and electric energy is 2.5:1, accordingly. This collector is ideal for stand-alone hot water supply systems. Besides, the electric energy, generated by hybrid collector POWERVOLT W, can feed the extra electric consumers, such as lighting, household appliances, automatics and other systems. The minimum service life of collector is 25 years. The warranty is 10 years.
Hybrid collector POWERTHERM M 180/750
The peculiarity of this model is that the ratio of generated heat energy and electric energy is 4:1, accordingly. This collector is applied in systems with significant prevalence of hot water consumption over energy consumption. This collector is ideal for stand-alone hot water supply systems. As the electric energy, generated by hybrid collector, can completely replace the electric consumption of controller, automatics and circulation pump of system. The minimum service life of collector is 25 years. The warranty is 10 years.
