Photovoltaic elements integrated into the building. Construction of these elements for innovative solar architecture
Today, building’s facade or ceiling cladding of buildings must meet a variety of tasks. In addition to visual aesthetics, protection against rain, eye protection and sound insulation, which are always important in modern buildings, the requirements for thermal protection in winter and in case of strong solar radiation shading are important as well.
The cladding of the building complies with these functions. Photovoltaic elements integrated to the building can be in charge of all these functions and also serve as a solar thermal power station.
- Solar power generation
- Light management
- Anti-glare protection
- Thermal protection
- Innovative architecture
- Reducing costs by combination of functions
MODULAR DESIGN WITH SOLAR WINDOWS
Variation of design from opaque to transparent
Transparent or semi-transparent modules are aesthetically pleasing due to its bright transparency, as composite glass components or elements are present in the insulating glass. Opaque module is the technology used for surfaces of homogenous facades that do not require transparency.
For each application there are available special encapsulated glass in the solar cells available in glass constructions, for example: glass compounds for roof glazing. Horizontal angles, vertical angles and combinations of discretionary angles can be applied. All solar elements comply with the requirements of the construction industry and can be applied with all the traditional systems of metal construction. Static requirements are met through the selection of the type and thickness of the glass.
Solar cells have been are encapsulated for decades with tested experienced composed laminate blades. Also in the manufacture of insulating glass, elements can be traced back to a decade’s manufacture experience. In addition to a variety of types and standardized sizes, customer-specific solutions are also possible. The elements are compatible with the majority of common columns-locks in the market trade systems and can be used in many different applications. In this regard, we will gladly advise you.
SOLAR ENERGY GENERATION: ELECTRIC ENERGY
A photovoltaic installation connected to the network is essentially composed of the following main components:
- Solar modules
- AC and DC wiring
- Device protection and driver
Rated power often called with Wp, of the solar modules is evaluated according to a uniform international standard, called standard conditions test. Energy efficiency, which can be achieved in the course of a year depends on the location and orientation of the solar module.
Solar modules generate direct current, which is converted into alternate ting current by an inverter. Inverter coupled solar modules with the power grid mains. In this way solar generated electricity in buildings can be way more efficient and profitable. Normally all electrical power feed the public network against the corresponding bonus.
