General information

Description This model represents different configurations of solar thermal system with storage in a neighbourhood of 11 residential buildings. Relevant components in the model include buildings energy demand, solar thermal collectors, electrical heaters, storage tanks, and a district-heating network. An accurate representation of the system performance is strongly dependent on varying temperature states over a period of time, which can only be assessed through dynamic modelling.
