Solar simulator for industrial process heat applications

The Solar Heat for Industrial Processes online Calculator (SHIPcal) is an open source initiative specifically developed for industries interested in integrating solar energy in their processes. SHIPcal integrates numerical models into a web-based interface (ReSSSPI) in order to provide design-point, annual performance and economic information to industrial end-users. The SHIPcal interface interface, ReSSSPI, has 361 registered users from around the world and more than 883 simulations have been performed.
