Solar Panel Module Location:

Cove.tool is referring to the EN 15316-4-6 Table B.4 for the 'Solar Panel Module Location' factor calculation. The 'Solar Panel Module Location' is a factor that takes into account the system performance of the building integrated photovoltaic installation depending on:

  1. Conversion system from direct current to alternating current.
  2. Actual operation temperature of the photovoltaic modules.
  3. Building integration of the photovoltaic modules. 

Distinction between different building integration could be according to the type of ventilation of the photovoltaic modules. 

The values for the different types of 'Solar Panel Module Location' factors can be found in the table below:
