A simulation and analysis of the energy conversion equations describing the behavior of a hybrid system composed of solar photovoltaic PV, and geothermal subsystems for power generation and district heating are presented in this paper. A numerical model based upon the aforementioned energy conversion equations was developed, coded and results were compared to experimental data. The model is intended to be used as an optimization and design tool for such hybrid systems. The model predicted
