The museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam is currently closed for restoration. The architect Van der Steur made an extensive study of lighting in museum rooms (1930). This resulted in a pitched roof with glass and a layer of horizontal glass panes (legramen) that form the ceiling of the exhibition rooms. Below the glass panes timber blades ...

With advancements in the photovoltaics (PV) market, involving increased PV module efficiency and reduced costs, the logical progression is the integration of PV into various surfaces, including vehicles (VIPV). For a driving VIPV, the constant change in irradiance presents a significant challenge. The location, weather, and time are key factors...

The increasing deployment of photovoltaic (PV) modules in urban environments, often prone to shading, underscores the critical importance of selecting shading-resistant modules. Unfortunately, a standardized parameter for assessing and comparing PV module performance under shading remains absent. Currently, quantifying a module's ability to...

This thesis presents experimental research on a phenomenon that has been widely observed in photovoltaic systems in recent years. Hot-spots, most commonly reported as areas of extreme temperature within PV modules, have been identified as a critical issue in the industry. This is primarily due to the fact that solar cells are subjected to...

This report investigates the potential use of Phase Change Material (PCM) technology in poorly insulated lightweight homes in the Netherlands. The aim is to develop a cost-effective and easy-to-install PCM product that can decrease energy consumption through passive heating and cooling. The proposed design involves a multi-layer curtain system...

The higher complexity of adaptive façades with respect to conventional static façades hinders their applicability to the built environment. To address this, passive solutions aim at lowering the number of components while preserving the benefits of these systems. In this paper the design of a two-component passive dynamic sunshade that combines...

Nonequal current generation in the cells of a photovoltaic module, e.g., due to partial shading, leads to operation in reverse bias. This quickly causes a significant efficiency loss in perovskite solar cells. We report a more quantitative investigation of the reverse bias degradation. Various small reverse biases (negative voltages) were...

Controlling the operation of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) systems is arguably the most effective way to reach desired indoor conditions in buildings. Nevertheless, such control may involve complex dynamics when dealing with passive energy technologies. In this paper, we focus on maximizing the passive operation of HVAC in...

Satisfying thermal comfort in indoor spaces is still a challenge in terms of energy saving, and several HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) systems have been proposed for this purpose. This paper conducts an analysis to evaluate and optimize the long-term operation of a novel HVAC system installed at The Green Village, a living...

Along with the widespread adoption of solar energy, it is fundamental to develop methods and tools that help practitioners during the design phase of photovoltaic (PV) systems. Currently, multiple commercial software can quantify a particular location's annual energy yield while including the horizon's shading effect (e.g., mountains,...

How to analyse the omissions of thermal regulations and evaluate methodologies that provide building execution or thermal certificates that do not correspond to reality and usually incur costs? We can start by analysing different simulation methods and shading calculations that provide solar gains and shadow optimisation. After evaluating how...

To achieve a high performance in sub-module power conditioning circuits, it is important that power converters are designed in accordance with the photovoltaic (PV) cell impedance at the input. Taking this one step further, exploiting the impedance of cell strings could even support novel power conditioning approaches in PV modules. In this...

Among environmental controls, solar shading and ventilative cooling are widely considered as key passive strategies for limiting the overheating risks in buildings. While their application is encouraged through Energy Performance of Buildings Directive regulations, several studies have shown that summer thermal comfort in heating-dominate...

The human visual system perceives 3D depth by observing how much points shift between the left eye and right eye. Toon-shaded renders of 3D models often have untextured surfaces with discretized shading, and these flat featureless areas give the eyes few reference points to perceive 3D depth. The primary depth cues come from contour lines and...

Low-lying, densely-populated coastal areas across the world are under threat of hurricane-induced floods. This is the case in, among others, the Galveston Bay Area. In response to this threat the USACE (United States Corps of Engineers) recommended a plan to reduce the risk of flooding, through a range of measures to form a resilient coast of...

Photovoltaic technology has become one of the leading renewable alternatives for energy production. One main factor in the diminished performance of a photovoltaic module is partial shading, due to the resulting mismatch conditions in the module. However, it is difficult to understand how a specific PV module reacts to shading in comparison with...

After developing the methodology, we applied it to the case of the Netherlands highways. We show that the average irradiation on the Dutch highway network is around 880 kWh/m2/y, 35% less than the potential of an optimally tilted conventional PV system in the south of the Netherlands. Covering the entire 1600 km of the Dutch highways network...
