Cursusdoelen
After the course Building Integrated Photovoltaics the student:
  • has gained knowledge about technical, organizational and financial aspects of integration of solar energy technologies in the built environment and can identify various forms of energy system integration in buildings;
  • has knowledge about the performance, reliability and durability of PV systems integrated in the built environment in various climates;
  • understands how energy generated by solar systems balances with the energy demand in the built environment for various uses: housing, mobility etc.;
  • can interpret the results of data monitoring of solar energy systems;
  • has knowledge of various simulation tools and is able to work with at least simulation tool;
  • can apply all information learnt in an engineering context of a design project in the field of building integrated PV while integrating technical, financial, organizational and aesthetic aspects;
  • is able to report, present and reflect on all information learnt and applied in an engineering context.
Inhoud
Near-zero energy buildings (NZEB) are essential for the development of a low carbon built environment which is envisioned by the European Commission in 2020 and beyond. In this context building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is considered to be one of the most effective means to create near-zero energy buildings.
BIPV covers the domain of combining solar energy generation with building construction elements. This is a challenging task because BIPV is part of the building envelope with the following functions: Protection from rain, wind and noise; Thermal insulation from winter cold and summer heat; Supply of daylight and passive solar gains; Aesthetic looks of a building and regulation of users’ comfort; Self-produced and consumed power by renewable energy (leading to NZEB buildings)
 
BIPV elements must be used in synergy with materials and geometries that are common in architecture, such as glass and metal, and have opaque or semi-transparent surfaces that can be integrated in roofs, facades, sunshades, skylights etc.
 
In the past decade photovoltaics has become a mature sustainable energy technology. Within these rapid developments BIPV is emerging as an interesting new market segment which brings along new perspectives on energy generation by buildings, new financial models and new regulations. All these ascpects will be explored in this course.
 
This course consists of several lectures about building integrated photovoltaics, a practical on simulation tools and an engineering assignment which will be executed as a project by a small team of 2 to 3 students. This team will receive guidance by feedback sessions. The final result of the project will be a report which will be presented in public. Both the report and the presentation will be examined.
