Abstract

Phase change material is widely used for thermal regulation and passive temperature control. PCM is recognized as one of the most promising material to store thermal energy in form of latent heat. High operating temperature of PV cell leads to decrease the conversion efficiency and life span. Thus PCM can be used to regulate the temperature of PV panel in order to enhance its performance. This paper is focused on cooling of PV panel by phase change material. A thorough review is carried out to investigate the different phase change materials, their performance and application in different systems. This review includes both experimental as well as numerical study. This paper has concluded that paraffin wax is widely used for PCM cooling of PV panel. To increase heat transfer and thermal conductivity, fins and nano particles are used. It is also found that specific PCM with melting temperature should be used to achieve the uniform temperature distribution. Comparison of PCM for different climate condition has been also investigated. The stored thermal energy can be used for many thermal system applications. The outcomes of this study are discussed in conclusion section.
