Process for cooling Photovoltaic Modules

Posted by BPE e.K.Responsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Germany

Summary of the technology

Photovoltaic modules generating electric energy from global radiation often heat up under high global radiation values and loos electric power under these conditions, offen called voltage drop, We have developed different cooling methods which reduce temperature of photovoltaic modules and at the same time generate additional electric energy during cooling. For this cooling process we use thermogenerators. Based on weather situation cooling of photovoltaic modules could result in higher electric energy.

Description of the technology

Photovoltaic modules generating electric energy from solar radiation often heat up under high global radiation values and loos electric power under these conditions, offen called voltage drop. One of the reasons is infrared radiation as part of the global radiation. We have developed different cooling methods which reduce temperature of photovoltaic modules, reduce voltage drop of the photovoltaic module and at the same time generate additional electric energy during cooling. For this cooling process we use thermogenerators. Based on weather situation cooling of photovoltaic modules could result in higher electric energy.
