Photovoltaic/thermal (PV/T) hybrid system is a device which provides the electrical power and hot water simultaneously. In this study, the un-glazed flat-plat photovoltaic thermal system has been established with polycrystalline PV/T module, storage tank, controller, water pump etc. The results indicate the system thermal efficiency can reach 35.33% and photovoltaic conversion efficiency can reach 12.77% during the testing period. The water tank temperature can be risen from 26.2℃ to 40.02℃.
