Optimization Design of Solar Architecture Flat based on Branch and Bound Method

Xiaofeng Wang, Hongke Wang, Yale Liu, Hui Xiao, Jun Dong


In recent years, solar energy has experienced fast growth due to technological improvements. However, the optimization design for the solar architecture flat with photovoltaic cells in order to acquire the more large power is still a very challenging problem. In this paper, we present an integer programming model about the solar energy flat design, in order to acquire the optimal laying scheme. Considering the solving complexity of integer programming model, Branch and Bound algorithm is presented. Simultaneously, we also consider the problem of optimum tilted angle. Finally, we experiment our schemes, which are certified through figures and data. The experimental results and verifications demonstrate the better performance of our proposed method.
