Photovoltaique intégré au bati (BIPV)

La base de données BIPV (Buildin Integrated PhotoVoltaic) recense plus de 200 procédés constructifs permettant le montage en toiture, terrasse ou façade (intégré au bâti, intégration simplifiée, surimposition). Cet outil évolutif est entièrement libre d'accès (accès aux informations par les utilisateurs, référencement pour les fabricants) Les solutions sont classées suivant 10 catégories accessibles via le menu principal ou les vignettes ci-après. Pour chaque produit référencé, l'utilisateur peut prendre connaissance des informations de base relative au procédé de montage : Documentation technique Photographie Lien vers le site du fabricant Les produits ayant obtenus une appréciation favorable du CSTB (ATEc) sont également référencé à la rubrique Avis technique.

Solar Site Survey

The path of the sun across the sky changes with the time of year. This is why its important to do this obstacle survey, and not just stick your head out the window and see what the sun is shining on today. At the two equinoxes, the sun rises due east and sets due west. The winter solstice is the shortest day of the year and occurs on Dec 21 in the northern hemisphere. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and occurs on June 21 in the northern hemisphere. The 23.5 degrees referred to above is the tilt of the earth axis of rotation relative to the plane of the earths orbit. Renewable energy policy database and support:  Start. Wire 1002: home. To the the website of COST Action ES1002 WIRE: Weather Intelligence for Renewable Energies Due to climate change and shrinking fossil resources, the transition to more and more renewable energy shares is unavoidable.

But, as wind and solar energy is strongly dependent on highly variable weather processes, increased penetration rates will also lead to strong fluctuations in the electricity grid which need to be balanced. Proper and specific forecasting of ‘energy weather’ is a key component for this. Therefore, it is timely to scientifically address the requirements to provide the best possible specific weather information for forecasting the energy production of wind and solar power plants for the next minutes up to several days ahead. SunShot Initiative High Penetration Solar Portal: New Methodology Helps Utilities More Accurately Evaluate Impacts of Distributed PV. Distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems often must undergo an interconnection study process before they can be connected to the power grid.

These system-impact studies can be both costly and time-consuming, and they often fall short when it comes to accurately assessing the potential grid impacts of differences in PV system size and location, as well as the inherent variability of PV plant output. A report recently released by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Sandia National Laboratories , the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), and the Georgia Institute of Technology offers a new methodology to help utilities better evaluate how PV affects distribution system operations. “ Time Series Power Flow Analysis for Distribution Connected PV Generation QSTS simulation implements multiple time-consecutive power flow solutions, where the converged state of one iteration is used as the beginning state of the next.

( 2 Appréciations ) Détails Catégorie : Innovations vertes Publié le vendredi 21 septembre 2012 14:35 Écrit par Fabienne Marion Air Liquide a inauguré ce jjeudi 20 septembre un laboratoire de R&D pour l'industrie solaire.

La ligne de production de cellules solaires permettra de tester intégralement de nouvelles molécules et de nouveaux procédés, adaptés aux besoins de chaque client, et de les évaluer. Une équipe de scientifiques expérimentés dans le domaine des technologies photovoltaïques dirigera ces travaux de recherche, dans le centre de R&D du groupe Air Liquide situé sur le plateau de Saclay, près de Paris en France.

Air Liquide est le leader mondial de la fourniture de gaz, molécules avancées et services pour l'industrie solaire. System Advisor Model (SAM) Panneaux Solaires 2 en 1.

It follows the physical principle of AMPS, adds the portion of tunneling currents [6~7], improves the convergence property, and provides a better visualization. It's compatible with the simulation files downloaded from this WIKI. Because this WIKI and database are based on sharing spirits, if wxAMPS works well in your simulation research, sending us a copy of your device files would be appreciated a lot.
