A conventional rooftop turbine ventilator is a helpful part of a building's ventilation system. The innovative hybrid ventilator, which is powered by hybrid wind and photovoltaic, can enhance the ventilation performance of a conventional ventilator. In this study computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations will be applied to estimate the indoor ventilation efficiency of hybrid ventilators as well as conventional ventilators. The results show that a hybrid ventilator provides approximately four times the exhaust capacity of a conventional ventilator. Installing a hybrid ventilator in a central position on a slanted rooftop is highly recommended to factory ventilation.
