Abstract: The PV panels integrated on the wall are mainly heavy cladding systems, disabled to apply in certain buildings because of the limitations of construction strength. The authors proposed a new solution with flexible PV panels mounted without additional sub-construction. In the presented paper, two aims were formulated: to compare the performance of the free-standing (FSPV) and integrated insulation wall system PV (WIPV) panels experimentally as well as verify the existing one-diode equivalent models implemented in ESP-r: Kelly’s and WATSUN-PV model. The experimental results show that the (WIPV) system can influence significantly on the temperature and slightly on the power of PV panels.
