Integration of photovoltaic thermal technology in the household water heating system explore the possibility of lowering energy consumption for the domestic market. However,its lower thermal efficiency characteristics compared with conventional solar thermal collector remains the barrier in practical application.The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of photovoltaic thermal collector for domestic water heating application in Malaysia.A theoretical F-chart method adopted in evaluating the performance of the photovoltaic-thermal water heating system for a typical family house with four occupants. Preliminaty analys is conducted in Ayer Keroh, Malacca shows the optimal tilt angle of location obtained at 30 degrees with the average solar radiation of 18.35 MJ/m2 per month.Based on feasibility analysis,the proposed photovoltaic thermal system capable meeting 85% of annual water heating load demand under the surface area of 5.66 m2 .The total heating energy generated by the photovoltaic thermal system ranges between 2,284 to 2.376 kWh per year.In summary,the integration of photovoltaic thermal collector is suitable for meeting domestic water heating demand in Malaysia.
