SimSol: free solar simulator download by CSTB and ADEME

Simsol is a free software for predicting thermal performance of solar installations.

Features

This new software was developed as part of a collaboration with the Agency for Environment and Energy Management (ADEME) and the CSTB.

The tool is based on dynamic simulation (calculated at time of one hour) with TRNSYS. Six configurations of collective solar installations were defined:

- External primary exchanger and a separate centralized backup
- External primary exchanger and integrated centralized backup
- External primary exchanger and separated and instant centralized backup
- Option to discharge the solar stock
- Internal primary exchanger and a separate centralized backup
- No primary heat exchanger and a separate centralized backup
