  6. 6. Bari, Italy - 1MW ground mounted
  7. 7. Hutton Mews, Putney
  8. 11. PV Monocrystalline (8m 2 /kWp) (7m 2 /kWp) Polycrystalline Hybrid (6m 2 /kWp ) Amorphous (15-20m 2 /kWp) Cloudy conditions V.large surface areas Small surface areas Good yield Large surface areas Good yield Small surface areas V.good yield
  9. 12. Monocrystalline (7m 2 /kWp) Small surface areas Good yield
  10. 13. Hybrid (6m 2 /kWp ) Small surface areas V.good yield
  11. 14. Amorphous (15-20m 2 /kWp) V.large surface areas
  12. 15. (8m 2 /kWp) Polycrystalline Large surface areas Good yield
  13. 16. Mounting structures <ul><li>On roof – suitable for high quality roofs, structurally sound that will last for 25 years </li></ul><ul><li>PV is the roof – suitable for replacing poor quality roofs, for high wind loadings, to max out the roof and ideal for new build </li></ul><ul><li>Certification is tightening up </li></ul>
  14. 19. PV is the roof
  15. 20. Skylights and vents Comes with skylights and/or roof vents
  16. 21. Gutters Gutter brackets fixed to angle-section at 40cm centres. Angle-section fixed to underside of MSR.
  17. 22. MP sheets MP Sheet provides protection to the junction box and cabling at the rear of PV module from chemical environments (gases, vapours etc.) or physical protection from activities within the building
  18. 23. Integrated insulation <ul><li>T-Profile support rail </li></ul><ul><li>Locking bracket </li></ul><ul><li>Insulated panel with Kraft aluminium vapour barrier (80mm – R d 2.25) </li></ul><ul><li>not shown – additional 100mm of insulation on top to give R d 3.65 </li></ul>The insulated panels are installed between the I -beams (purlins) of the roof structure : Purlin Density = 3.5 kg/m ²
  19. 24. Design and installation <ul><li>MCS </li></ul><ul><li>Track record </li></ul><ul><li>Price considerations… </li></ul><ul><li>… and yield potential expressed as Performance Ratio </li></ul><ul><li>The effectiveness of the PV system (i.e. how well it is designed and installed) is the ratio between the AC kWh energy delivered compared to the DC kWh potential. </li></ul>
  20. 25. PV SYSTEM Modules Inverters Stringing PERFORMANCE RATIO THE measure of PV system effectiveness Available radiation at array: SHADING ORIENTATION INCLINATION YEAR to YEAR variation AC kWh SITE & WEATHER CONSTRAINED
