Analytical and numerical approaches for the predesign of central solar heating plants with seasonal storage (CSHPSS) systems are compared. The results indicate that the analytical approach employed in SOLCHIPS predesign tool is significantly faster and more powerful than the traditional numerical methods for predesign of high solar fraction seasonal storage solar heating systems.
