In the following work, a photovoltaic system is to be planned on the flat roof of the Simon-Zeisel House of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences. A technical planning and economic evaluation will be carried out. The building was modeled using AutoCAD as a 3d model. The building plans of the building, which were adapted to the actual events after inspection of the roof areas, served as the basis. The areas were surveyed on site. As a .3ds file, the 3d model was imported into the PV * Sol software. Various module types were evaluated and the modules REC 350TP 2S 72 TwinPeak were selected on the basis of the evaluations, as they were able to install the greatest capacity. The installation of 329 modules could be simulated, this corresponds to a peak power of 115.15 kWpeak. Shadows below 15% were considered acceptable, the modules were either raised at a 30 ° angle on the flat roof or installed vertically on the facade. The unusually steep angle was chosen because it was possible to achieve a high energy output. Inverters, wiring, guards and other necessary elements have been selected in the next steps. The energy of 2808.5 MWh generated in 25 years could be fully used by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences for its own use. After calculation of the costs and savings over a lifetime of 25 years using a net present value method with an assumed interest rate of 1.15% per year and an assumed electricity price increase of 1.5%, it became apparent that the plant would have amortized from year 15 onwards. Over the estimated lifetime, a profit of roughly € 100,000 would be generated for the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences. With the planned photovoltaic system on the roof of the Simon-Zeisel-Haus, the power consumption of the university could be reduced by an average of 3.3%. Further steps, above all efficiency-enhancing measures, are therefore of great importance in order to achieve the European objectives.
