Abstract

This report deals with the work carried out under research contract No. ESA-M-160-I that the Commission of the European Communities signed with ENEL (National Board for Electric Energy) and Phoebus, in the framework of the European Modelling Group coordinated project. Such project, which is one of the concerted actions of Project A (Solar Energy Application to Dwellings), involves participants from eight countries of the European Economic Community and concerns the development of computer simulation models as well as the knowledge of the accuracy and validity range of these models. After an introduction which outlines the main objectives of the project, details are given on the development and use of EMGPI, the first European modelling programme, and EMGP2, a generalised modelling programme. Both programmes have been carefully tested against the data supplied by only the SPTF installations. Then the report treats two other important tasks of the group: the execution, by means of the models, of a series of studies on different types of solar systems and the development and improvement of simplified methods, needed for a quick evaluation of solar installations. Finally, conclusions are drawn and recommendations are made for the future work.
