Photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) collectors are hybrid solutions for the conversion of solar energy into electrical andthermal energy. The development of validated and standardized PVT collector models is important for thecomparison of products, informed decision making based on energetic and economic performance, and topromote the market diffusion of PVT technology. This contribution presents a novel PVT performance model,compares different parameter identification approaches, and validates the model and its implementation in acommon simulation software (TRNSYS) for system simulations.
