The DLR Institute for Solar Research develops a variety of software tools supporting the research and development activities for single components and overall systems. Additionally, the techno-economic evaluation of different technologies plays an important role.
The scope of application comprises raytracing for the optical system design, thermo-dynamic simulation of line and point focus systems as well as the yield assessment and economic evaluation of various renewable energy technologies.
The tools presented below are either developed by or in close collaboration with the Institute of Solar Research, and are employed in many different projects.
We use many more tools beyond those mentioned here and would be glad to discuss possibilities for the support of your projects using the software at our disposal.
