Abstract

In this study, an external electrical cooling unit powered by PV modules was installed on the roof-top of a bus to keep cooled interior atmosphere at a certain temperature level during the journey breaks. All solar cells used in this project were fabricated by Center for Solar Energy Research and Applications (GUNAM) and; then, integrated onto a bus roof together with MAN Turkey A.S. For integration of PV modules onto roof of bus, a reliable and commercially applicable method has been developed. Following integration, illumination level on the bus in summer season was measured to investigate the shadow effect on the bus roof while touring in the city. (C) 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
