Strong solar radiation and high ambient temperature can induce an elevated photovoltaic (PV) cell operating temperature, which is normally negative for its life span and power output. There are many techniques to maintain the temperature of PV cell at a level consistent with higher efficiency of solar PV cell. Phase change materials (PCMs) are one of the most effective tools to maintain the temperature of solar panel at level consistent with its higher efficiency. The uses of PCMs for cooling of PV cell have been studied within the past decade. There are large numbers of PCMs that melt and solidify at a wide range of temperatures, making them attractive in a number of applications. This paper also summarizes the investigation and analysis of the available temperature regulation of PV cell with PCMs for different applications
