With the development of photovoltaic power generation, the reasonable and high effect utilization of solar rational are faced with some problems. Building integration photovoltaic (BIPV) requires not only the function of external enclosure, but also independent power for construction purposes. BIPV using renewable solar energy is a green building technology; it is a new concept of producing energy. How to scientifically configure the installation capacity of BIPV system is an urgent problem to be solved. Based on the PVsyst software, this paper makes a preliminary design for the BIPV system.In the preliminary design stage, according to the geographical locationavailable area of the building and the characteristics of load operation, the optimal matching of photovoltaic modules of the integrated photovoltaic building was analyzed to determine the configuration and installation scheme of photovoltaic modules. Thenbased on PVsyst software's photovoltaic module configuration data, using HOMER software, based on the total installation and operating costs of each component's life cycle, simulate the size and configuration of different renewable energy systems, and optimize the economics of the BIPV system. Configure the design and verify the PVsyst software design.Finally, refer to the PVsyst and HOMER software design schemes, determine the system construction scheme, and verify based on actual measurements.
