This 2008 document provides an overview of the various software packages and codes that have been used to support Sandia National Laboratoriesâ€™ CSP research activities. The report also looks into software programmes which have been developed by other institutions or companies.
The report looks into three CSP technologies i.e. power tower systems, linear concentrator systems and dish/engine systems. For each of the technologies, an assessment of the software is made based on a hierarchy for modeling complex systems.
The report also identifies which of the modeling schemes are still maintained and which institute or company is using them.
