Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR GENERATING ENERGY FROM AMBIENT LIGHT AND PHOTOVOLTAIC CONVERSION DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PRODUCTION D'ÉNERGIE À PARTIR DE LUMIÈRE AMBIANTE ET DISPOSITIF DE CONVERSION PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Device for generating energy from ambient light A device for generating energy from ambient light, particularly sunlight, comprises a transparent panel (15, 16) having frontally a lateral entry surface (A) for ambient light and having laterally an exit surface which is optically coupled to a photovoltaic conversion device (250). An optically active photoluminescent structure (18) is arranged downstream of the entry surface, which is able and configured to emit emission radiation upon excitation by radiation incident thereon. The emission radiation propagates partially via the panel (15, 16) to the exit surface (U) and to the conversion device. The conversion device comprises an associated array of mechanically interconnected photovoltaic modules (200), each comprising one or more photovoltaic cells. The modules (200) are electrically connected between a first conductor (210) on an optically active frontal side and a second conductor (220) on an opposite, back side. Successive modules in the array overlap each other such that a first conductor of one module and a second conductor of a subsequent module make contact with each other.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif de production d'énergie à partir de lumière ambiante, en particulier de lumière solaire, qui comprend un panneau transparent (15, 16) ayant frontalement une surface d'entrée latérale (A) pour la lumière ambiante et ayant latéralement une surface de sortie qui est optiquement couplée à un dispositif de conversion photovoltaïque (250). Une structure photoluminescente optiquement active (18) est agencée en aval de la surface d'entrée, qui peut et est configurée pour émettre un rayonnement d'émission lorsqu'elle est excitée par un rayonnement incident sur celle-ci. Le rayonnement d'émission se propage partiellement par l'intermédiaire du panneau (15, 16) jusqu'à la surface de sortie (U) et le dispositif de conversion. Le dispositif de conversion comprend un réseau associé de modules photovoltaïques (200) mécaniquement interconnectés, comprenant chacun une ou plusieurs cellules photovoltaïques. Les modules (200) sont connectés électriquement entre un premier conducteur (210) sur un côté frontal optiquement actif et un second conducteur (220) sur un côté arrière opposé. Des modules successifs dans le réseau se chevauchent, de telle sorte qu'un premier conducteur d'un module et un second conducteur d'un module suivant établissent un contact l'un avec l'autre.
