Solar Energy in Buildings. Optimizing Thermal Balance for by Dorota Chwieduk (Auth.)

By Dorota Chwieduk (Auth.)

Solar strength in Buildings offers sun radiation basics and their functions in constructions, supported via theoretical research and result of unique simulation stories in solar power availability, assortment, and conversion for either lively and passive use. In-depth insurance of power stability and warmth move in development envelopes is supported by means of the inclusion of calculations and case reports, whereas contextualizing inside of an built-in layout approach.

  • Explains the easiest makes use of of state of the art advances similar to centred sun thermal, thermoelectric and polymetric materials
  • Covers energetic and passive sun assortment and conversion systems
  • Provides power stability calculations and case reports deriving from genuine installations attach conception and practice
