About this book

This book provides the most up-to-date information on hybrid solar cell and solar thermal collectors, which are commonly referred to as Photovoltaic/Thermal (PV/T) systems.  PV/T systems convert solar radiation into thermal and electrical energy to produce electricity, utilize more of the solar spectrum, and save space by combining the two structures to cover lesser area than two systems separately. Research in this area is growing rapidly and is highlighted within this book. The most current methods and techniques available to aid in overall efficiency, reduce cost and improve modeling and system maintenance are all covered. In-depth chapters present the background and basic principles of the technology along with a detailed review of the most current literature. Moreover, the book details design criteria for PV/T systems including residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

About the authors

Ali H. A. Al-Waeli Obtained his Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering form Sohar University, Oman in 2016. In 2019, Ali obtained a PhD in renewable energy from Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI) of the National University of Malaysia (UKM). He has over 26 publications in Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus indexed international journals. He is also a reviewer peer reviewer in many international journals. He is also a member of organizations such as IEEE, WSSET and IAENG. In 2018, Ali became a co-editor in the journal of management science and engineering research. He was granted a fund for a research project in 2014 by the Omani Research Council (TRC) and has successfully completed the project. He became a research assistant at the National University of Malaysia (UKM) in 2017 and is currently working as a post-doc researcher on a research project funded by the Malaysian government.  Moreover, Ali invented the "Photovoltaic thermal (PV/T) collector with nano-PCM and nanofluids". Ali is interested in research in the field of energy efficiency, renewable and sustainable energy and solar energy, particularly photovoltaics (PV).

Hussein A Kazem: obtained his BSc, MSc in electrical engineering from University of Technology, Iraq, also PhD from Newcastle University, UK. He is presently Associate Professor in Faculty of Engineering-Sohar University, Oman. He has been involved in the field of solar and renewable energy for more than twenty years. His main contributions are in standalone and grid-connected photovoltaic systems, solar radiation and systems modeling, solar water heating system, solar desalination, combined photovoltaic thermal or hybrid collector and solar/wind hybrid system. He has published six books and over 160 research papers in journals and conferences. He has delivered keynotes speeches at national and international conferences on renewable energy. He is a winner of some national and international awards. He had completed some national and international research grant. He is chairman of the Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology Research Group in Oman.

Kamaruzzaman Sopian obtained his BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin- Madison in 1985, MSc in Energy Resources from the University of Pittsburgh in 1989 and PhD. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Miami - Coral Gables in 1997. He is presently the Professor and Director of the Solar Energy Research Institute (SERI), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
