Abstract: The paper presents the simulation based analysis of the Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) system for a modeled test chamber located in a composite climatic zone (New Delhi) and compliant to Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) of India. The model is simulated using EnergyPlus software for BIPV energy generation and cooling/heating consumption .The analysis has been carried out by considering typical perimeter-core zoning pattern. PV system installation has been considered only on the south wall of 30 m² area. The following configurations (cases) have been analyzed in the study; • ECBC compliant test chamber without PV on wall. • PV attached on ECBC compliant model. • PV attached on wall after removing insulation layer from exterior wall. • PV on wall without insulation and with non-ventilated air gap. • PV on wall without insulation having ventilated air gap. The energy yield from BIPV and consumption for cooling and electricity generation has been compared for the above cases.
