the average temperature of operation for the hybrid collector being generally lower than for a standard PV module, its electrical production will be increased; A simulation model of finite differences describing a Hybrid photovoltaic-Thermal collector manufactured in a copolymer material has been developed. The thermal and electrical performances of this collector have been studied. a hybrid collector provide architectural uniformity on a roof in contrast to a association of two separate solar collectors.
