The study presents the effect of packing factor of Photovoltaic (PV) module on the room temperature, cell temperature and efficiency of a proposed Building Integrated Semi-transparent Photovoltaic Thermal (BiSPVT) and Building Integrated Opaque Photovoltaic Thermal (BiOPVT) systems with duct mounted on the roof of the building. Different PV materials like mono-crystalline silicon (m-Si), amorphous silicon (a-Si), poly-crystalline silicon (p-Si), cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium selenide (CIS) and hetero-junction with intrinsic thin layer (HIT) have been considered in the analysis under the cold climatic condition of India. Since Srinagar (India) has the cold climatic condition, therefore, its climatic data has been considered in the present analysis.
