The paper presents the analysis of the building integrated photovoltaic panels (BIPV) realized for the same photovoltaic system, placed in different locations, for the continental climate of Romania. For all studied cases, the photovoltaic (PV) system is examined in various vertical configurations, considering the integration into buildings placed in urban agglomerations, characterized by small horizontal surfaces, but generous facades. For the analyzed situations it is assumed that the PV panels are fixed in vertical position. Therefore, one of the possibilities of raising their efficiency consists in controlling the operating temperature of the photovoltaic cells. The operating parameters of the photovoltaic panels are studied in case of integration at 10 m height above the ground and the results are reported on the unit surface. The model and the functioning parameters are processed using TRNSYS software. The results are analyzed for average daily, monthly and yearly values. The results reveal some major differences obtained for the same system placed in different locations or orientations. The average efficiencies for maximum production months are lower than annual ones, while the daily values for efficiency are lowest. These values are directly dependent on the intensity of solar radiation and are negatively influenced by the operating temperature of the photovoltaic panel.
