INSEL 8 : : Software for simulation, monitoring, and visualization of energy systems

INSEL 8 Simulation von Energiesystemen

INSEL® is a blockdiagram simulation system for programming applications from the entire renewable energy sector. INSEL is mainly designed for engineering and other firms working on large and complex energy projects and is ideal for use in research and education.

INSEL offers users ready-made simulation models for a quick start. But users can design completely new models for all kinds of system applications with the help of the comfortable and powerful INSEL graphics editor. In addition, INSEL offers a unique interface for the extension of the block libraries in programming languages like Fortran and C/C++.

The big palette of INSEL blocks can be combined with all MATLAB® & Simulink® features and offers a huge repertoire of model components for a variety of simulation applications.
