Abstract: In the development of intelligent architecture industry, the issue of building energy conservation has been regarded as one of the most urgent problems. As a scientific and technological product, the photovoltaic (PV) system has brought building energy-saving technology into a new era. At the same time, it combines architecture and art very well. The building integrated PV (BIPV) industry will be the commanding height of the competition of the world's advanced industry in the future. Thus, it is significant to study the photovoltaic system in intelligent photovoltaic architecture. In this paper, we introduce the principle of the PV system and discuss the creativity of the PV system in architecture. Finally, we present a creative design of a set of grid-connected PV system and analyse the benefit of the system. From the research, we can draw a conclusion that the intelligent photovoltaic architecture is not only an excellent original architectural art but also an energy conservative building. It will be beneficial for the study of the PV system in the field of building energy efficiency and architectural art.

Key words: intelligent architecture, PV system, BIPV, grid-connected
