Title (EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC PANEL HAVING A DISTRIBUTED SUPPORT FRAME
(FR) PANNEAU PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE À CADRE DE SUPPORT RÉPARTI
Abstract:
(EN) A photovoltaic panel having a photovoltaic module supported by a distributed support frame is described. The distributed support frame may include a support member extending over a back surface of the photovoltaic module. For example, one or more support members may extend laterally from a support hub mounted on the back surface. The distributed support frame may reduce a span length of the photovoltaic module between support locations, and thus, may reduce a likelihood that a module laminate will crack under a design load.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un panneau photovoltaïque comportant un module photovoltaïque soutenu par un cadre de support réparti. Le cadre de support réparti peut comprendre un élément de support s'étendant sur une surface arrière du module photovoltaïque. Par exemple, un ou plusieurs éléments de support peuvent s'étendre latéralement à partir d'un moyeu de support monté sur la surface arrière. Le cadre de support réparti peut réduire une longueur de portée du module photovoltaïque entre des emplacements de support, et peut ainsi réduire la probabilité qu'un stratifié de module se fissure sous une charge théorique.
