Photovoltaics is one of the most promising technologies for global energy production in the context of the energy crisis and climate change. Photovoltaic modules are now available in such a wide range of forms that nearly all of the usual fl at parts of buildings can be provided with photovoltaic capabilities. In addition to producing energy, these modules offer a number of synergistic effects, since increasingly they are integrated as glazing elements and can perform such other functions as weather protection, solar control, and providing privacy. Special modules such as solar roofing tiles and solar membranes are available for particular applications. This book explains the technology, presents the available products, and communicates clearly how they are used in buildings, with a particular focus on large-scale buildings. It provides architects with all of the necessary know-how to provide a new or existing building with a photovoltaic system, covering both planning and implementation. Last but not least, it is a valuable practical instrument to prepare for communicating with the relevant manufacturers and clients .The designer can leave the details of configuration wiring to the electrical specialist. ... Connecting modules in series strings is desirable for two reasons: aۥ the wiring size is kept small, aۥ inverters are more efficient and cost-effective at higheranbsp;...
