Reports of Subtask C

Analysis of System Reports of Task 26 for Sensitivity of Parameters
February 2007 - PDF 1.44MB - Posted: 2008-03-21
By: Wolfgang Streicher and Richard Heimrath
This report summarizes the simulation results of nine solar combisystems. The systems were analyzed indepth using the same reference conditions and the same simulation tool. System optimization was achieved using sensitivity analysis with three target functions based on fractional energy savings.
