Translated title of the contribution: Thermal analysis and performance of double glazing window with semi-transparent photovoltaic module

Abstract

Thermal analysis and performance of a semi-transparent photovoltaic module installed with a double glazing window (TDK) has been studied. The convective heat transfer occurs because of the temperature differences. The software COMSOL was used to solve the mathematical model and four different gases namely air, argon, krypton and xenon were used. The gap's thickness varies from 5 to 100 mm. The climate conditions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was used. The photovoltaic module used for the simulation studies are of the amorphous type (Si-a). It was concluded that the use of xenon for filling up the gaps of the windows gave maximum benefits for reducing cooling load. The optimal gap thickness obtained were between 10 and 20 mm.
