Abstract
A large number of regions are attractive for the application of renewable energy equipment, including those that are using the solar energy potential. But the volatile nature of the solar radiation flux requires specific forecasts and calculations of its intensity. Besides, installations under urban conditions are widely used in two forms: solar power plants which photovoltaic panels are placed at a certain angle to the horizon on a flat building roof; and integrated photovoltaic panels in the building construction. However, the use of such power supply systems is limited by the structural features of the roofs of buildings. That is why, it is necessary to take into account the mutual shading of the rows of photovoltaic panels and by the structural elements. This leads to limitation of the capacity of the installation and to shortage of the utilization of the solar energy technical potential for the installation placement. Integrating photovoltaic panels into the building structure, a decrease in the amount of generated electric energy are associated with a deviation from their optimal spatial orientation, which leads to reduction in the coefficient of the used installed capacity of electrical equipment, that is, the low efficiency of conversion of solar energy into electrical energy. That is why, an accurate assessment of the solar potential of renewable energy sources, taking into account the design features of urban development, allows one to justify the parameters of the generating unit at a design stage, and to predict its operating mode and to evaluate technical and economic efficiency
