T*SOL

T*SOL logo.

T*SOL is a simulation program for the planning and professional design of solar thermal systems. The standard module contains a large number of system configurations for domestic hot water supply and space heating. Swimming pool, large systems, and air collector systems also come standard with the program. This dynamic simulation program, with its easy-to-use Design Assistant, was developed for engineers, planners, roofing specialists, and heating or building technicians. After entering just a few parameters for location and consumption, systems or company system configurations can be selected and the collectors and stores sized. The automatic variant calculation allows the user to select the optimal system configuration. Screen Shots
