21. Evaluating Building Integrated Photovoltaic Performance Models
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W Davis
Abstract: Predictive performance tools could accelerate the implementation of integrated photovoltaics (BIPV. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) seeks to improve and validate previously developed computer simulation tools with experimen ...

22. Performance and Characterization of Building Integrated Photovoltaic Panels
Published: 5/1/2002
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W Davis
Abstract: Buildings consume more than two-thirds of the electricity in the United States. The incorporation of photovoltaics into the buildings, referred to as building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), offers an aesthetically pleasing means of displacing cent ...

23. Field Test of a Photovoltaic Water Heater
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, J O Richardson
Abstract: A solar photovoltaic water heating system has been installed at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The system provides hot water for the restroom facilities at the Park's main visitor center. This paper gives an overview of the technology, de ...

24. Building Integrated Photovoltaic Test Facility
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: The widespread use of building integrated photovoltaics appears likely as a result of the continuing decline in photovoltaic manufacturing costs, the relative ease in which photovoltaics can be incorporated within the building envelope, and the fact ...

25. Measured Performance of Building Integrated Photovoltaic Panels
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty, Mark W Davis
Abstract: The photovoltaic industry is experiencing rapid growth. Industry analysts project that photovoltaic sales will increase from their current $1.5 billion level to over $27 billion by 2020, representing an average growth rate of 25%.(Cook et al. 2000)[1 ...

26. Calibration of Thin Heat Flux Sensors for Building Applications Using ASTM C 1130
Published: 5/1/2001
Authors: Robert R Zarr, V Martinez-Fuentes, James J Filliben, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: Calibration measurements of thin heat flux sensors for building applications are presented. The findings support the continued development of precision and bias statements for ASTM Practice C 1130. Measurements have been conducted using a 1016 mm di ...

27. Prediction of Building Integrated Photovoltaic Cell Temperatures
Published: 5/1/2001
Authors: Mark W Davis, Arthur Hunter Fanney, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: A barrier to the widespread application of building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is the lack of validated predictive performance tools. Architects and building owners need these tools in order to determine if the potential energy savings associa ...

28. Experiences with Using Solar Photovoltaics to Heat Domestic Water
Published: 4/1/2001
Authors: Brian P Dougherty, Arthur Hunter Fanney
Abstract: The solar photovoltaic (PV) industry continues to make progress in increasing the efficiency while reducing the manufacturing costs of PV cells. Economies of scale are being realized as manufacturers expand their production capabilities. Products a ...
