SimSol: a free solar simulator to download by CSTB and ADEME

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

Functionalities

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

The tool is based on dynamic simulation (calculations in time steps of one hour) with TRNSYS. Six configurations of collective solar installations have been defined:

- External primary exchanger and separate centralized backup
- External primary exchanger and integrated centralized backup
- External primary exchanger and separate centralized instantaneous backup
- Variant for the discharge of the solar stock
- Internal primary exchanger and separate centralized backup
- No primary heat exchanger and separate centralized backup
