Hybrid PV/Thermal systems (PV/T) are proposed to harvest the two renewable forms of solar energy,

electrical and thermal. The use of PV/T systems improves electrical efﬁciency while utilizing the available

solar thermal energy for various heating applications. In this work, numerical simulations perform for

PV/T system in hot climate conditions. The cooling system consists of eleven channels arranged in

parallel to each other on the backside of the PV module. A novel three-dimensional numerical model of

the PV/T system was developed to evaluate the thermal efﬁciency. The standard k e epsilon model was

used to simulate the ﬂow. This novel system was based on using symmetric-convection boundary

conditions for the right and left sides of the PV/T model and symmetric-symmetric boundary conditions

for the middle cooling channels rather than simulating the whole cooling system. Using one channel

simulation allows the creation of less number of meshes, hence, reduces the computational time. The

thermal efﬁciency was estimated by the superposition method for all cooling channels of the PV/T

system. The thermal efﬁciency of the PV/T system was 60% at 0.4 (L/min) and 68% at 5.4 (L/min). The

obtained results were in good agreement with the results presented in the literature.
