I am doing an assignment about the performance of photovoltaic windows (BIPV). Is it possible to create a photovoltaic window that contains PV between two glass and air gaps?

@LeoRHJ does this post or this post answer your question? It seems that you assign PV generation to an exterior surface, not to a specific layer within a construction assembly.

Thank you, I'll try to apply these method first.

I see that there are several ways to create a photovoltaic window. One is to create a shading device with the thermal properties of STPV and then assign it between the two window layers. The other is to enter the properties of STPV into the optical system6, and then Create the glass system in WINDOW 7.7 and then import the glass system into E +. Which one is more reliable?
