The output power of the solar photovoltaic panel decreases as the operating temperature increases. The use of photovoltaic/photothermal (PV/T) collectors not only effectively cools the operating temperature of the battery, increases photovoltaic power, but also produces hot water. Therefore, the PV/T collector improves the annual utilization efficiency of solar energy, and can meet the user's demand for different energies. This paper builds an experimental platform to compare the PV/T collector photovoltaic/photothermal performance and experimental comparison with traditional PV. The results show that the PV/T collector has a thermal efficiency of 31.5% and a photovoltaic efficiency of 17.82% at a flow rate of 0.023 Kg/s to achieve high efficiency in solar energy utilization.
