Abstract

See full text

A photovoltaic solar module in plate form, in particular for use as a curtain wall or roof element, with at least one outer pane facing towards the incident light, at least one inner cover arranged at a distance behind it in the direction of the incident light, and, if necessary, an edge structure surrounding the outer pane and the inner cover, joining them to one another to form a seal. Solar cells are arranged between the outer pane and the inner cover, embedded in cast resin, laminating film(s) or the like, with a system of conductors interconnecting them electrically, from which connecting leads for electrical connection to other adjacent solar modules lead into the area located outside the plate structure. The connecting leads are attached to a connecting lug, which is joined to a module connection element extending essentially outside the plate structure, where the connecting lug is arranged on a tangential plane of the module connection element and can be interconnected to corresponding module connection elements of adjacent solar modules. The electrical connection system possesses a high degree of mechanical stability, even if individual components possess little or no load-bearing capability, e.g. an inner cover of a flexible plastic film.
