Façade Test Stand
Client: Concordia University, Montreal
To test solar building façades, PSE developed a façade test stand for Concordia University. Artificial sunlight is generated and falls on the façade. Irradiation sensors mounted on a portal axis allow users to measure radiation in front of and behind the façade and thereby determine the transmission of energy. In addition, a specially developed air collector test stand tests the efficiency of façade-integrated air collectors.
A YouTube video shows exactly how the PSE test stands are put to use at Concordia.
