An efficient low-carbon system is proposed to meet the heating and cooling demands of rural houses in cold regions. Mini-channel solar panels incorporating a novel multiple-throughout-flowing loop are used for heat collection, whilst a vapour injecti...

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd A consequence of the integration of photovoltaic module and thermoelectric generator is the presence of thermal contact, which affects the heat transfer in the hybrid system. Thermal and electrical contact are inevitable in a ther... Read More about Comprehensive study and optimization of concentrated photovoltaic-thermoelectric considering all contact resistances.
