Abstract: The mathematical model and design software tool KOLEKTOR 2.2 with user-friendly interface for detailed modeling of solar thermal flat-plate collectors has been built and experimentally validated for different solar thermal flat-plate collector concepts. The design tool is applicable especially for design and virtual prototyping of new solar flat-plate collectors resulting in efficiency curve determination, for parametric analyses to obtain information on different parameters influencing the collector performance and especially for investigation of thermal performance of advanced solar collectors (building integrated, evacuated collectors, etc.). Examples of parametric analyses made for selected construction elements together with modeling possibilities of the design tool KOLEKTOR 2.2 are presented in this paper.
