The focus of the research group is set on performance and reliability of photovoltaic systems, solar resources, exploitation and mitigation of variability, PV integration in electricity grids and building integrated photovoltaics.

Research is performed in international cooperation projects but also directly with industry partners by supporting them in product development, quality testing and dynamic simulations of photovoltaic systems.

The group is involved in several International Energy Agency and European projects

MAIN TOPICS:

  • energy performance and reliability of photovoltaic systems under different circumstances
  • analysis of solar resources: exploitation and mitigation of variability
  • PV integration in electricity grids
  • building integration of photovoltaic components

RESEARCH PROJECTS ARE FOCUSED ON:

  • development and test of photovoltaic modules for the integration into the grid and in buildings
  • performance evaluation of installed photovoltaic systems
  • development of online tools for the performance simulation of photovoltaic systems coupled with satellite data and geographical information systems

SCIENTIFIC CONSULTANCY BOTH FOR PRIVATE ENTERPRISES AND PUBLIC AUTHORITIES ARE PROVIDED IN TERMS OF:

  • yield assessment, performance simulation and due diligences of photovoltaic systems
  • evaluation of building stocks for photovoltaic applications for public bodies
  • support in the building integration of photovoltaic systems
  • laboratory test of photovoltaic modules

METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH:

  • dynamic simulations of photovoltaic systems, Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD analysis of building integrated components
  • on-site monitoring of photovoltaic systems
  • monitoring of an outdoor experimental multi technology installation laboratory tests
