Ogni impianto fotovoltaico è composto da numerosi componenti – moduli fotovoltaici, i diversi cavi, l’inverter ovvero il cuore dell’impianto stesso - tenerli monitorati e rendere questi dati facilmente accessibili permetterebbe di ottimizzare la gestione e la manutenzione degli impianti, che si tratti di impianti residenziali o di grandi impianti.

This database tool aims to boost the BIPV penetration in the building sector, overcoming existing barriers as well as encouraging designers with inspiring examples of BIPV buildings and a quick glance at the current BIPV market.   As part of this initiative, a database collecting products is worked in parallel. These products are categorised in (a) modules, (b) mounting systems and (c) energy systems and can then be filtered by colour, size, transparency, technology type, storage, power conversion, etc.

This tool is a simulation methodology for assessing the thermal performance of Complex Fenestration Systems (CFS). In this simulation approach, solar radiation is treated with a detailed optical model based on ray tracing and using the software Radiance. The resulting absorbed fraction of solar radiation is included in a CFD simulation, performed with COMSOL Multiphysics, capable of modelling both heat transfer and fluid flow.

New design tool and approaches, and innovative construction methods are enabling architects and engineers to conceive and develop increasingly complex and daring building envelopes. This process is rapidly reshaping our built environment, and transforming the concept of building envelope itself, which is no longer a passive and static element that only separates the indoor environment from the outdoor world.  In this fast changing context, one of the major issues is the evaluation of the performances of such complex façade systems.
