Diagram 27 shows how it is possible to determine the technical requirements of different solar energy systems and devices with a computer simulation programme ("F-Chart"). One enters the corresponding project variables, e.g. the given manufacturer data about a particular collector type and then the software returns important information one has to know for a correct collector installation like the angle of inclination for the collectors and other data that are important for the dimensioning of the corresponding storage system.
