temperature levels are in general well above a standard fa¸ade. Temperature levels
were measured on all surfaces as well at the air entry and exit (see Figure 2.27).
On a day with a high fa¸ade irradiance up to nearly 700Wm − 2 , all temperature
levels were analysed in detail and the fa¸ade simulationmodel was tested. The entry air
temperatures in the fa¸adewere significantly higher (up to 6 K) than the air temperature
measured on a shaded side of the building (see Figure 2.28).
On the outer glass pane of the PV module, temperature levels of nearly 60 ◦ C
were measured (see Figure 2.29). To model this type of fa¸ade with highly absorbing
elements and asymmetric heat flow conditions, the new Nusselt correlation from
Equation 2.1 was used. As can be seen in Figure 2.29, the calculated surface
