(FR) EMBALLAGE POUR TUILES DE TOIT SOLAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
One embodiment provides a solar roof tile module. The module includes a plurality of solar roof tiles positioned side by side and one or more tile spacers. The tiles are electrically and mechanically coupled to each other. A tile spacer is positioned between two adjacent solar roof tiles, thereby preventing water leakage. A solar roof tile can include a front cover, a back cover, and a plurality of photovoltaic strips positioned between the front and back covers. Each photovoltaic strip includes a first edge busbar located on an edge of a first surface and a second edge busbar located on an opposite edge of a second surface, and the photovoltaic strips are arranged in such a way that the first edge busbar of a photovoltaic strip overlaps with a second edge busbar of an adjacent photovoltaic strip, thereby forming a serial connection among the photovoltaic strips.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un mode de réalisation d'un module de tuile de toit solaire. Le module comprend une pluralité de tuiles de toit solaires positionnées côte à côte et un ou plusieurs éléments d'espacement de tuile. Les tuiles sont couplées électriquement et mécaniquement les unes aux autres. Un élément d'espacement de tuile est positionné entre deux tuiles de toit solaires adjacentes, ce qui permet d'empêcher une fuite d'eau. Une tuile de toit solaire peut comprendre un couvercle avant, un couvercle arrière et une pluralité de bandes photovoltaïques positionnées entre les couvercles avant et arrière. Chaque bande photovoltaïque comprend une première barre omnibus de bord située sur un bord d'une première surface et une seconde barre omnibus de bord située sur un bord opposé d'une seconde surface, et les bandes photovoltaïques sont agencées de telle sorte que la première barre omnibus de bord d'une bande photovoltaïque chevauche une seconde barre omnibus de bord d'une bande photovoltaïque adjacente, formant ainsi une connexion en série entre les bandes photovoltaïques.
