The researcher concluded that the low efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) units due to the increase in cell temperature occurs when a small part of the absorbed solar radiation is converted into electricity and the remaining part is lost as heat.
A range of fluid nanomaterials have been added to increase the thermal conductivity of these fluids, which are used to cool PV cells, which have become the subject of much research.
In this study, three nanomaterials were added to the water as a base fluid with multiple volume ratios to determine the best type and concentration of nanoparticles suitable for this application.
