New software for calculation of solar thermal systems  

T*SOL 2017 is the new version of Valentin Software's program for the simulation of solar thermal systems. Automatic functions have been expanded to include the net present value, the return on capital, and the heat price. This makes it possible to determine the influence of the size of various components of a solar thermal system. In the "P3 - Preheating with buffer storage" system, up to 6 collector loops and 6 different loads can be connected. The T*SOL database dialogs have been standardized and reworked so that selecting, pasting and editing components (collectors, heat generators and air collectors) is now much faster and smoother. In all dialogs, it is now possible to create favorites and to keep an overview of the frequently used components. T*SOL simulates the energy efficiency of heating systems supported by solar thermal energy, and generates the energy label for direct output to a printer; this enables heating installers to create a label for each individually built system.
