How Thermodynamic Solar Panels Work

Thermodynamics Solar Panels Systems join two incomplete technologies,the heat pump and the solar thermal collector.

Heat pumps are quite efficient equipment but the heat they produce from their renewable component varies only according to changes in the temperature of the environment.

Thermal solar collectors are the best source of heat on hot and sunny days but they are totally inefficient whenever there is no sun.

Thermodynamic Solar Panels Technology manages to surpass the limitations of both the heat pump and solar collector technologies.

Through the cooling liquid (R134a or R407c) which covers a closed circuit, the liquid goes into the solar panel and suffers the action of sun, rain, wind, environment temperature and other climate factors. During this process the liquid gains heat in a more favourable way than a heat pump. After this stage,the heat is transferred to an exchanger with the help of a small compressor, which heats the water. The liquid cools down and the circuit is repeated.

As the fluid has a boiling temperature of approximately -30ºC, the system works even when there is no sun and it even works at night, providing hot water at 55ºC, day and night, hail, rain, wind or shine, unlike the traditional solar panels system.

The energy consumption of the system is basically the same as a fridge compressor that makes the liquid circulate. There are no ventilators that help the evaporation process, or defrost cycles, which imply unnecessary energy consumption,unlike what happens with heat pumps.
