Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COOLING SOLAR PANEL AND RECOVERING ENERGY THEREFROM
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE REFROIDISSEMENT DE PANNEAU SOLAIRE ET DE RÉCUPÉRATION DE L'ÉNERGIE CORRESPONDANTE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for cooling solar panels and recovering energy therefrom are disclosed. In one aspect, the system includes at least one solar panel configured to convert at least a portion of incident light into electrical energy and a pump configured to receive and regulate the flow of a working fluid. The system further includes a heat exchanger configured to receive the working fluid from the pump and circulate the working fluid in proximity to the solar panel so as to extract heat from the solar panel into the working fluid such that the working fluid undergoes a phase change from liquid to gas. The solar panel temperature control system is configured to cycle the working fluid via an Organic Rankine Cycle.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de refroidissement de panneaux solaires et de récupération de l'énergie correspondante. Selon un aspect, le système comprend au moins un panneau solaire conçu pour convertir au moins une partie de la lumière incidente en énergie électrique, et une pompe conçue pour recevoir et réguler l'écoulement d'un fluide de travail. Le système comprend en outre un échangeur de chaleur conçu pour recevoir le fluide de travail provenant de la pompe, et le faire circuler à proximité du panneau solaire afin d'extraire la chaleur du panneau solaire pour la transférer dans le fluide de travail, de sorte que le fluide de travail subit un changement de phase, de liquide en gaz. Le système de régulation de température du panneau solaire est conçu pour faire circuler le fluide de travail par l'intermédiaire d'un cycle de Rankine organique.
