|Name project||Fraunhofer ISE – Atrium roof|
|Year||2001-04-22 (Start operation date)|
|PV application||Inclined roof - transparent roof|
|PV power total||5 kWp|
|Summary||The saw-toothed roof over the atrium is one of the four demonstrations of PV building integration at the premises of Fraunhofer ISE. It is an important element of the building architecture and has a strong visual impact on the entrance hall. It is a good example of a holistic planning approach. It integrates daylighting, protection from summerly overheating, heat insulation and electric power production.
Last not least the shadow pattern of the modules creates an interesting aesthetic effect of inside the atrium, which varies with time of day and season. Modules were specifically designed for this system.
Glazing is born by a steel support structure which holds of mullion/ transom stick construction. Modules are placed on sealing rubber stripes and fastened by a screwed cover profile.
The whole systems had been optimised for operation under partial shading from front sheds.
PV power is 5 kWp.|
