Title (EN) PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULE HAVING BI-DIRECTIONAL COUPLINGS
(FR) MODULE PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE AYANT DES COUPLAGES BIDIRECTIONNELS
Abstract:
(EN) A photovoltaic (PV) module having bi-directional couplings is described. The bi-directional couplings include a first coupling mounted on a support frame under a first edge of the PV module and a second coupling mounted on the support frame under a second edge of the PV module. The PV module can be a keystone module and the bi-directional couplings of the keystone module can connect to respective couplings of several adjacent PV modules. The bi-directional couplings can form male-to-female connections with the respective couplings to quickly combine the PV modules into a PV module assembly. The PV module assembly includes the bi-directionally connected PV modules supporting each other in both an x- direction and a y- direction.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un module photovoltaïque (PV) ayant des couplages bidirectionnels. Les couplages bidirectionnels comprennent un premier couplage monté sur un cadre de support sous un premier bord du module photovoltaïque et un second couplage monté sur le cadre de support sous un second bord du module photovoltaïque. Le module photovoltaïque peut être un module en trapèze et les couplages bidirectionnels du module en trapèze peuvent être raccordés à des couplages respectifs de plusieurs modules photovoltaïques adjacents. Les couplages bidirectionnels peuvent former des connexions mâle-femelle avec les couplages respectifs pour combiner rapidement les modules photovoltaïques en un ensemble module photovoltaïque. L'ensemble module photovoltaïque comprend les modules photovoltaïques reliés de manière bidirectionnelle se supportant les uns les autres à la fois dans une direction x et une direction y.
