Title
(EN) SOLAR/THERMOELECTRIC HYBRID DEVICE FOR ENHANCED RENEWABLE ENERGY HARVESTING
(FR) DISPOSITIF HYBRIDE SOLAIRE/ THERMOÉLECTRIQUE POUR UNE RÉCUPÉRATION AMÉLIORÉE D'ÉNERGIE RENOUVELABLE
Abstract
(EN)
An exemplary hybrid solar cell device comprises a photovoltaic solar cell having a positive terminal and a negative terminal and a thermoelectric module unit having a positive terminal and a negative terminal, wherein the thermoelectric module unit comprises at least one thermoelectric module. Such a hybrid solar cell device has a hot side of the thermoelectric module oriented towards an external heat source; the positive terminal of the photovoltaic solar cell connected in series with the negative terminal of the thermoelectric module unit, and a load connected between the positive terminal of the thermoelectric module and the negative terminal of the photovoltaic solar cell.
