Download of TRNSYS Type 832 Collector Model

Version 5.10, with documentation (English)

The simulation model Type 832 is a further development of the model Type 232 by Bengt Perers and Chris Bales (IEA SHC Task 26). With the extensions it is possible to simulate several thermal nodes in the path of the fluid flow as well as thermal gains by condensation and frost (for uncovered collectors operated below the dew point). With the multinode option collectors in series in low flow operating conditions can be simulated more accurately.

This model was written for TRNSYS 17 and does NOT run on TRNSYS 18.
(Should also run with TRNSYS 18 32 bit version, but has not been tested on this by SPF.)

The calculation algorithm is implemented to the best of our knowledge and belief. However, the SPF Institute of Solar Technology can not be held responsible for the calculations.
