Daylight Availability In A Room Equipped With Pcm Window, Dominika Knera, Dariusz Heim

International Building Physics Conference

The increase in building energy performance mainly focused on the improvement of physical properties (thermal and optical) of individual components of building envelope. Very good isolation parameters can be easily achieved for opaque elements like walls and roofs. However, improvement of glazed component parameters is still required. Improving thermophysical properties of window can be achieved using phase change material (PCM). Presented work is a part of extensive research project including the analysis and experimental investigation of window integrated with PCM layer. This modification changes the thermal properties of glass unit and effects on visible light transmission through the window. The ...

International Building Physics Conference

Smart windows, especially those electric-driven, represent one of the most advanced technologies for controlling solar radiation. For a correct use, it is necessary to understand their real behaviour through in-situ measurements on full-scale application as well as calibrating and validating visual simulation models capable of predicting their performances. In this paper, the preliminary results of current research activities aimed at developing simulation models of electric-driven full-scale glazing are presented. The research activities started with the assessment of the visible solar transmittance as a function of light incident angle through in-situ measurements; different models, with related values, of the visible solar ...
