Novel thermal management design for BIPV modules incorporating MEPCM layers
Originálne riešenie tepelnej regulácie BIPV modulov včlenením vrstiev MEPCM
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Ing. Matiašovský Peter CSc.
Annotation:This study proposes an innovative building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) by integrating building structure, a heat flow mechanism, and a microencapsulated phase change material (MEPCM) with a photovoltaic (PV) module. Parametric simulations and experiments of the thermal and electrical performances of this BIPV module will be performed to account for the influences of external and internal ambient environments, daily solar irradiation, and thickness as well as the melting point of the MEPCM layer. The project is expected to span over three years, jointly executed by Slovak Academy of Sciences (Slovak Republic) and National Cheng Kung University (Taiwan). The results (including testing and evaluation reports) will be structured in terms of a model process for the installation and operation of this innovative MEPCM BIPV toward improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
