Paper Title:
Measurement and Test Facility for Solar Heat Gain of Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) Modules
  Abstract

For achieving the maximum energy efficiency of Building-integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) buildings, the Solar Heat Gain (SHG) through the BIPV modules should be measured accurately. A solar calorimetry hot box was designed to test the SHG through the BIPV modules in this paper, which could measure the incoming solar and long-wave radiation various BIPV module configurations. Combined with the electric energy production, a new concept of ratio of solar heat gain to power energy generation efficiency was presented in this paper, which can be characterized as the design indicator of BIPV module’s energy efficiency level for BIPV buildings cooling in hot summer. The influence of indoor climate environment parameters on the electric energy output efficiencies of BIPV modules can be conducted by the solar calorimetry hot box.
