Солнечные панели приспособили под кондиционирование домов (3 фото) At Stanford, a team of researchers led by Professor Shanghai Fan has been developing its own unique thermal panel for several years. The device is designed to cool buildings, functioning like a solar panel. It is enough to mount the structure on the roof and no additional energy sources are required for its operation. The team recently reported on its successes. The report indicated that they slightly changed the original model. They want to train her in the role of an electricity generator. That is, engineers strive not only for efficient cooling of the facades and roofs of buildings, but also for the parallel production of maximum volumes of solar energy with its further conversion into electricity.

He appeared several technical modifications that bring scientists closer to the final result. According to the developers in the latest report, they have upgraded the top layer of the panel. A special thermal padding was added to it, supplemented by semiconductors. What specific semiconductors are involved in this energy process have not yet been reported. Солнечные панели приспособили под кондиционирование домов (3 фото) Engineers have already mounted a prototype of their brainchild on the roof of the university and tried to generate energy in a volume sufficient for conversion with parallel cooling of the building. They almost succeeded. The panel, in fact, converted a certain part of the energy. It’s amazing that the process goes without any intervention from external devices. It is not necessary to provide power to the panel. Of course, modest results have so far been obtained during this study. But engineers are counting on accelerating and strengthening the process of obtaining solar energy in the future. After all, while they used only metal coatings and amplifiers.
