Abstract
(EN)
A system and method of utilizing redeployable insulated self-ballasted photovoltaic modules comprises an insulative panel removeably attached to a substrate such as a roof, wall or other structure. A photovoltaic module is attached to the insulative panel. The insulative panel has tongue and groove attachment ends to fit a plurality of panels together. In one embodiment, an elastomeric coating is applied to the surface of the insulative panel to attach the photovoltaic module and to weatherproof the surface. In another embodiment, adhesives are used to attach the modules. A structural panel may be used to enhance performance. In one embodiment, a corrugated channel panel is used to circulate a fluid like water through the channels to cool the photovoltaic panels and or heat water. Various raceways and associated wiring is installed to complete the system. An elastomeric coating may be used to enhance the weatherability of the system.

L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé d'utilisation de modules photovoltaïques isolés à ballast intégré redéployables, lequel système comprend un panneau isolant attaché amovible à un substrat tel qu'un toit, un mur ou une autre structure. Un module photovoltaïque est attaché au panneau isolant. Le panneau isolant comporte des extrémités de fixation à rainure et languette qui permettent d'assembler une pluralité de panneaux entre eux. Dans un mode de réalisation, on applique un revêtement élastomère à la surface d'un panneau isolant afin d'attacher le panneau photovoltaïque et de protéger la surface contre les intempéries. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, on utilise des adhésifs pour attacher les modules. On peut utiliser un panneau structurel pour améliorer la performance. Dans un mode de réalisation, on utilise un panneau ondulé comprenant des canaux pour faire circuler le long des canaux un liquide tel que de l'eau permettant de refroidir les panneaux photovoltaïques ou de chauffer de l'eau. On installe différents chemins de câbles et les câbles associés afin de parachever le système. On peut utiliser un revêtement élastomère afin d'améliorer la résistance aux intempéries du système.
