This work proposes a mathematical dynamic modeling of a PV-T bi-fluids collector prototype that willpermit electricity production and preheating air and/or hot water production.This study is realised in a bi-dimensional geometry according to some assumptions. The collector is discretizedalong the flow and the collector slope is taking into account in the radiative transfers equations. Thus, aTRNSYS software type is developed in order to describe the thermal and electric behavior andperformance of this collector in dynamic conditions.Then, an experimental study is presented on a test bench in situ on the PV/T air panel configuration(without water production option) which is integrated in a building roof.
