The decrease in output power of solar photovoltaic modules as their temperature increases during the operation is a major concern for users. This project involves the reduction in the temperature of solar PV modules during its operation. A passive evaporative cooling technique is used to control the temperature rise of PV modules that occur due to solar irradiation. This method involves designing a heat exchanger entirely by the clay material and integrating the same with the PV module so that it tends to reduce the temperature of the solar panel by evaporating the thin film of water. Thus, using the clay material for the heat exchanger is effective, silent, and environmentally friendy
