This paper presents an investigation into the thermal behavior of a DC-DC converter integrated on the back side of a thin-film photovoltaic (PV) module. Analytical thermal models of the converter and the PV module are made and the results obtained from the models are compared to the results obtained by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations.
