Abstract: The presented research work is about the investigation of an uncovered, liquid-based PVT collector, which serves as a sole heat source for a heat pump system. The PV module is thermally coupled with a fin-tube heat exchanger, which enables to use energy from the sun and ambient air optimally; hence, the collector works as a good environmental heat exchanger. Within the scope of the project, a PVT Field with a heat pump has been installed and tested dynamically under hardware-in-the-loop test environment for the energy supply of a single-family house. The result shows that the performance-factor with the system can go above 3.3 during the considered winter season.
