 Solar radiation can be converted to the electrical energy and thermal energy by photovoltaic panel and solar collector. In this experiment, PVT collector was designed, fabricated and tested its performance. The experiment conducted with PVT with and without water flow to compare the efficiency of the system. The efficiency of PVT systems relate to the increasing of the temperature of the operating system. The solar radiation showed the linear relation with the efficiency of systems. The water flow with the copper rods help the PVT collector in increasing the convection of thermal heat transfer. The power output increase with increase of radiation. The power output produced was higher when system using natural water flow as cooler. The efficiency of PVT varies with different intensity of radiation which stated in this experiment for 570 W/m2, 750 W/m2 and 880 W/m2.The average efficiency of PV panel for PVT with water flow is 10.01% and 9.44% for PVT without water flow. The efficiency of PV panel decrease with increasing temperature.
