Abstract: front page image
(EN) A solar energy converter comprising: a solar energy absorber, the solar energy absorber comprising a photovoltaic element; a heat transfer element in thermal contact with the solar energy absorber; a primary heat exchanger in thermal contact with the heat transfer element; a secondary heat exchanger; and a heat transfer control element; wherein the heat transfer control element is arranged to selectively place the secondary heat exchanger either in thermal contact with the heat transfer element or out of thermal contact with the heat transfer element.
(FR) L'invention concerne un convertisseur d'énergie solaire comprenant : un absorbeur d'énergie solaire, cet absorbeur d'énergie solaire étant équipé d'un élément photovoltaïque, un élément de transfert de chaleur en contact thermique avec l'absorbeur d'énergie solaire; un échangeur de chaleur primaire en contact thermique avec l'élément de transfert de chaleur; un échangeur de chaleur secondaire; un élément de commande de transfert de chaleur. Cet élément de commande de transfert de chaleur est conçu pour mettre sélectivement l'échangeur de chaleur secondaire en contact thermique ou non avec l'élément de transfert de chaleur.
