The Layout and Form Design Research on BIPV External Sun-Shading Skin in Hot-Humid Areas
Building external sun-shading is an important building energy efficiency measure in hot-humid areas. Integrated photovoltaic sun shading, which is of energy saving as well as power production, is one method with great potential for sustainable development of building. This paper extends the external sun-shading modules design and explores the BIPV design possibilities in the area by discussing the combined building skin strategy in hot-humid areas, photovoltaic external sun-shading modules layout and the micro-structure technical analysis. The model is optimized and the specific application in construction is determined through the software simulation of solar radiation shading, indoor illumination effects and photovoltaic shading .The reasonable combination of photovoltaic sun-shading modules and the battery arrangement with different light transmission rate enrich the possibility of the building skin space in architectural heat shielding and aesthetic design.
