Title
(EN) ROOFTOP PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTÈMES PHOTOVOLTAÏQUES DE TOIT
Abstract
(EN)
Provided are easy-to-install rooftop photovoltaic systems. One rooftop photovoltaic system includes a roofing material piece, a photovoltaic module disposed on the roofing material piece and an inverter configured to convert DC from the photovoltaic module into AC. Another rooftop photovoltaic system includes at least one active unit including one or more photovoltaic modules each including photovoltaic cells shaped as shingles to provide a roofing material appearance; and one or more inactive units having the roofing material appearance.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes photovoltaïques de toit faciles à installer. Un système photovoltaïque de toit comprend un élément de matériau de couverture, un module photovoltaïque monté sur cet élément et un convertisseur continu/alternatif conçu pour convertir le courant continu provenant du module photovoltaïque en courant alternatif. Un autre système photovoltaïque de toit comprend au moins une unité active comportant un ou plusieurs module(s) photovoltaïque(s), chaque module comprenant des cellules photovoltaïques se présentant sous forme de bardeau afin d'obtenir un aspect de matériau de couverture, et une ou plusieurs unité(s) inactive(s) présentant un aspect de matériau de couverture.
