Abstract

In this conference presentation, we shall describe recent progress in advanced novel materials polycrystalline silicone, gallium arsenide and cadmium telluride for photovoltaic solar panels deployed in mega yacht designs
We will review the fundamentals of PV physics, thermal conduction theory applied, material properties and then describe the new simulations with ANSYS FLUENT FV software
First we provide a brief overview of activities in the MPESG team at Salford University including heat transfer simulation methodologies developed, software and in house codes, applications in published journal papers in solar, aerospace, electromagnetic power generator, petrochemical, automotive technologies, including MSc, PhD and BEng projects supervised by the MPESG team members
We then return to the PV solar mega yacht study and identify superior performance achieved by new complex materials with extensive visualization
Pathways for future work are also outlined including thermo elastic deformation of the panels and alternative radiative heat transfer models for solar flux.
