Thermal Photovoltaic Water Heater (PVTW) collectors are used for heating the water and electricity generation simultaneously. This technique benefits from both light and heat of solar radiation to produce electricity and hot fluids. The hot water is used for space heating purposes. PCM storage is used to maintain heat supply to the waterside. Users can select between the use or not use PCM material. User will be able to calculate the following:
1-Plate temperature.
2-Outlet water temperature.
5-Glass temperature.
6-Heat losses.

**MatLab-SimuLink (64bit) should be used to run the model.
