Abstract

This report gives the results of the tasks allocated to the Dutch participant in the European Modelling group. Contributions were made to all objectives of the work carried out under research contract no. ESA-M-113-NL(B). As follows: + A considerable extension and improvement of the initial versions of the European detailed model (EMGP) for solar systems was achieved. + The validation of the model with the aid of experimental data from the Solar Pilot Test Facilities appeared to be limited by the accuracy of the experimental data available. + The EMPG was used for system studies which showed that the modular structure indeed is extremely suited for the comparison of completely different solar systems for the same application. + The development of a European simplified method was achieved, this ESA shows so far a better accuracy (smaller bias, less scattering) than existing simplified methods.
