    Solar simulation tool

    I need help with the solar radiation simulation tool PPF. What is the official internet site for it?

    I need to explore the software and maybe try the demo version if it exists. Do you know where can i get it from? Do you know any other softwares (freeware) that does the same job as the PPF? All information on PPF and solar simulation tools that can be used in urban planning would be appreciated, thanks..

    Tough one to Google, because "PPF" is a common acronym for "Photosynthetic Photon Flux". I looked everywhere, and no luck. Do you have the name of the software publisher?

    EDIT: Think I got it. http://www.radiance-online.org . Also see http://www.radiance-online.org/radia...agnon/ppf1.pdf

    Ppf

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you very much , i know that it is almost impossible to find stg on google about this software but every single paper about solar potential talks about this PPF software. I think that i am going to to write to Mr. Campagnon and ask directly to him, cause as far as i understood he is the creater of this tool.. We ll see but if you find any further information i would be thankful.
