Abstract: Increasing computing power allow numeric simulation tools like TRNSYS or COLSIM the modelling of more and more detailed thermal systems. This progresses in complexity and hard to handle system representations. Therefor graphical user interfaces like SIMULATION STUDIO (for TRNSYS) were developed. But even these tools got problems in managing complex systems turning out in confusing graphical system representations and an incomprehensibilty of the models. Due to this fact a new approach of modelling was introduced to SIMULATION STUDIO. This was done within the scope of a Masterthesis at the Department of Solar and System Engineering. A modular concept of subsystems is used. These are connected via uniform interfaces, which were also defined and implemented.
