Summary

This simple diagram shows the basic concept of solar cell temperature process in which the temperature of operation of a PV module is determined by an energy balance. The solar energy that is absorbed by a module is converted partly into thermal energy and partly into electrical energy, which is removed from the cell through the external circuit. The thermal losses must be dissipated by a combination of heat transfer mechanisms. Back losses will usually be more important that the thermal collectors, since heat transfer from the module should be maximized so the cells will operate at the lowest possible temperature.
