I am doing a photovoltaic experiment and I wanted to know if anyone knew the heat transfer value of a photovoltaic panel or how to calculate it.

That depends on the materials (and their thermal conducitivies) and the environment. Is this heat transfer between solids, solid to liquid, or solid to gas (e.g. air). Then one must consider whether there is conduction or convection (solid to moving liquid or gas). The heat transfer coefficient may be temperature dependent.
