This research project aims to test bifacial PVs using unique techniques. The study involved an innovative concept in multiple ways to create a PV-TEG Hybrid. The PV used was a custom made Bi-Facial PV, which can absorb solar radiation from both sides and hence provide more power than a normal PV panel of the same size. The PV was made in-house and the performance of the Bi-Facial PV was compared to the performance of a similar single faced PV. To improve the spectral energy conversion, a spectrum splitting mirror was used which was used to split the solar radiation to visible and infrared parts. The mirror is inverted and placed at an angle of 45° against the solar radiation to provide the required direction of splitting. The visible spectrum would be used by the PV panel for photovoltaic production while the IR part would be transmitted on to a special heat absorption sheet which absorbs the heat and transfers it to the TEG Hot side.
