The use of cooling panels as heat dissipation elements integrated in buildings has been previously investigated by the authors. Those elements would be connected to the
condenser and would dissipate the heat in a passive form. Following the research, this study analyses and compares the thermal performance of two heat dissipation panels as part of a hybrid cooling system. Both panels were experimentally tested under different variables, thus
having nine scenarios for each panel. Additionally, an already validated model was applied.
The empirical results show a considerable difference between the cooling capacity among them,
doubling the daily average ratio in one scenario. The heat dissipation ratios vary between 106 and 227 W/m2
in the first case and 140 and 413 W/m2 in the second. Regarding the model
applicability, the average error for each panel was 4.0% and 8.5%. The bond between the metal sheet and the pipes of the panels has proven to be the main parameter to assure the highest heat dissipation potential of each panel.
