Performance Analyzes

Within the apartment, a wall mounted monitoring and control system is installed. It consists of a charge controller, a battery and a DC/AC converter to supply the A/C system with electricity.

The system performance is monitored via a Raspberry Pi.

Photo-electric System

The rooftop system consists of the minimal set-up of 4 photovoltaic modules, each with a peak power of 100W. They are connected in parallel and provide a supply voltage of 12V.

The System is installed flat to avoid visual disturbance and minimize the wind force impact.

14 temperature sensors are distributed on two walls of the living room. Each wall has 7 sensors in equidistant steps from ceiling to ground. A minutely average measurement is taken.

The room air temperatures are logged and distributed via a Raspberry Pi.

Building Typology

The whole system is mounted on top and installed within a building in the Red Sea Resort El Gouna. It is used in a common building type which is present throughout the town where it is only varied in orientation and number of floor levels.

The electric consumption is monitored and a simulation model is available.
