A thermo-economic model for the simulation and optimization of a Central Solar Heating Plant with Seasonal Storage (CSHPSS) is presented. The model, written in Matlab, is used to investigate the effects of different design variables on thermal performance and cost. Daily and seasonal variations of solar irradiation at different latitudes are considered, and an original approximate model for thermal stratification is included. The simulation model has been also integrated with a non-linear constrained optimization procedure, in order to determine the optimal choice of design variables for different locations and operating conditions.
