The new version T*SOL 2018 allows its users to independently enter and save complex heat storage parameters. This makes the program flexible to use and precisely observes and works out the economic efficiency that is so important for commercial applications. The automatic parameter optimization function with its economic target variables include the capital value, the return, and the heat price. Thus, it is possible to determine the influence of the size of various components of a solar thermal system, e.g. to optimize the size of a storage tank or the number of collectors for their impact on the economic efficiency. A variety of tools are available for the evaluation of the results. The project report provides detailed simulation outputs and graphs can be created with a wide range of temperature and energy data for more in-depth analysis. Valentin Software has updated the component databases in the new version and made them easier to use.
