Photovoltaic Glazing for Automotive Applications 870036

ABSTRACT

A computer simulation of an automobile has been prepared which enables the spectral characteristics of the glass windows, semitransparent photovoltaic sunroofs, and special solar control coatings and films to be incorporated into the thermal analysis. This paper presents the resultant interior temperatures for three vehicle configurations when subjected to various ventilation flow rates, convection conditions, and solar control coatings.
