Simon De Meyere presenteerde de eerste resultaten van ons prototype op de internationale conferentie EU-PVSEC.
We present a wireless prototype BIPV system, designed for curtain wall elements, that applies inductive wireless power transfer. Measurements show that the system performs adequate for variable input power conditions, a prerequisite considering irregular solar radiation. Among others, we demonstrate experimentally that having a higher load resistance increases the voltage gain, while not significantly decreasing efficiency when operating at the optimal frequency. This can reduce stress on the voltage converters.Simon De Meyere, Simon Ravyts, Johan Driesen and Ben Minnaert. Applying Wireless Power Transfer for Curtain Wall BIPV Elements.
