Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Abstract

The study presents a numerical dynamic model carried out using TRNSYS and discusses the thermal performance of façade building integrated with PV modules on its west and east vertical sides. The needed thermal peak power and energy of the building were estimated added to the produced electrical energy of the installed PV system. The comparative study includes different climatic conditions within two European cities i.e. Venice and Helsinki, two locations of PV modules and two facade inner layer compositions.
