RISE Solar Testbed as a concept acts as an entry to the overall test and demo resources for solar PV and solar thermal at RISE. Main living labs and testbeds:
- An NZEB single family house with high class measurement equipment providing unlimited flexibility in the choice of building components and building services equipment to be tested (currently PV, a system with battery and DC-driven ground source HP and heat recovery and EV-charger)
- A controlled test environment for parallel testing of up to ten small scale grid connected, BIPV/ BAPV-systems
- A testbed dedicated to development of BIPV solutions e.g. assessment of building physics, performance and fire safety characterization
- A testbed for solar PV at high latitudes addressing system durability related to snow, ice and extreme temperatures
- Controlled environments for fire safety, durability, performance and EMC testing
Core areas are PV at high latitudes, building integrated PV/PV in the built environment and DC-systems in buildings. Applied research tasks focus on performance, durability, reliability and safety of PV components and system.
Specific and standardized technical test resources for PV modules including full-scale fire testing. For system evaluations, interaction between energy system components, as well as the grid can be studied in detail. Expertise on user behaviour studies via e.g. interviews and questionnaires are tied to the testbeds.
The NZEB house offers integration with ground source heat pump, DC-grid, battery, PV, free-cooling and demand controlled ventilation w/ heat-recovery. 5 kW BIPV/BAPV systems for side by side in the tests. PV performance in cold climates.
