Abstract

The report describes the work carried out under research contract No. ESA-M-114-D. The objectives of the programme from July 1981 to June 1983 were: - Development of a detailed simulation programme for solar systems. - Validation of the model with the aid of experimental data from the European Solar pilot Test Facilities; - Carrying out system studies withthe model; - Development of a European simplified method; - Validation of the simplified method with the aid of the detailed model. After development of the first version of the model by the coordinator, work was shared by the participants of the group. Validation results revealed that the limiting factor is the uncertainty of available data from the Solar Pilot Test Facilities. System studies showed the flexibility of the model for applications with various solar systems. A new European simplified method was developed and validated against the detailed model. This method proved more accurate.
