Paper Title:
Application of Building Information Modeling in Building Integrated Photovoltaics
  Abstract

Building information modeling (BIM) is a new method of dealing with the design and information of building component, this project created Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) in BIM with parametric design, it is a new way to study and analysis BIPV. In BIM models, all information about the building components and its lifecycle are included. Therefore the study utilized this important characteristic of BIM to explore its application in BIPV design. The author used BIM software Revit to develop a BIPV building model as the parametric prototype and programmed with panels’ information in C# 2008 to correlate the angle of photovoltaic (PV) panels with sun altitude, and finally applied application programming interface (API) in Revit to control these panels’ angle by the sun path.
