T*SOL 2018 with updated databases

Following the faster and easier use of the collector and boiler databases in T*SOL 2017, the new version T*SOL 2018 now includes further improvements. More than 3,650 flat plate and evacuated tube collectors and 1,550 boilers and auxiliary heaters can be accessed.

Storage tanks can now also be defined and saved by the user, in addition to collectors and boilers.

To optimize the solar thermal system, each component (collector, pipes, storage tank, boiler, etc.) can be parameterized individually. And with the help of the parameter variation, it is also possible to perform several simulations simultaneously, e.g. to automatically dimension the collector area and storage tank volume.

A variety of tools are available for the evaluation of the results. The project report provides detailed simulation outputs, which are recognized by German government funding programs. Furthermore, graphs can be created with a wide range of temperature and energy data for more in-depth analysis. If an energy label is required according to EU directives, you can also create this with T*SOL.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
