A full-size (1 × 5 m2) luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) has been constructed and the edge electric outputs from the attached photovoltaic cells monitored for a period of slightly over one year in the solar noise barrier (SONOB) “living lab” outdoor environment. The results of the edge electric output measurements were compared to ray-tracing...

The aim of this study is to assess the performance of prototype PV façade elements of various PV technologies, colors and textures. Within this context, a prototype PV façade demonstrator was constructed and monitored at SolarBEAT, Eindhoven. This prototype demonstrator consists of 9 façade PV panels of c-Si and CIGS technologies with flat and...

We report on the relative performances of two large-scale luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) noise barriers placed in an outdoor environment monitored for over a year. Comparisons are made for the performances of a number of attached photovoltaic cells with changing spectral illumination, cloud cover conditions and other seasonal variations,...

There is a growing interest in community-owned large-scale solar projects. However, if large amounts of electricity generated by these PV installations are not directly consumed by the local loads, grid congestion can arise, due to constrains in the local electricity network. This paper explores when grid congestion starts to occur and whether...

Choosing the most suitable PV technology for a ZigZag-structured façade cannot be based on one aspect, but involves four important aspects. First, a maximal energy density (Wp/m2 panel) of the PV-panel itself is preferred. Secondly, the amount of irradiance from the reflective panels onto the PV-panels should be maximized. However that could...

Building Integrated PhotoVoltaics (BIPV) is one of the fastest growing segments of the photovoltaic industry worldwide. More than 25 years development has brought to the market diversified products for seamless integration into the building envelope by using a variety of PV technologies. One of the biggest loss factors, though, for such...

Infrastructure Integrated PhotoVoltaics (I2PV) is the next big step for large scale energy production. PV cells can be integrated in a wide range of infrastructure applications without requiring any additional space. In this way the infrastructure can have the additional functionality of producing electricity from sunlight. One of the promising...

This study focuses on the partial shade-mitigating effects related to the insertion of additional ideal bypass diodes in residential-scale photovoltaic (PV) systems. For this purpose, quantification of the resulting energy yield benefits is carried out in a representative residential environment. It is widely recognized that partial shading...

Building Integrated and Building Attached Photovoltaic (BIPV, BAPV) systems may suffer from lower performance than predicted as a result of unwanted partial shading. New system architectures have been proposed to optimize performance. The common approach of these new architectures is to track the Maximum Power Point (MPP) of every solar module...
