I will be developing a solar-assisted absorption cooling system similar to the one described in the image attached. What software could I use to design and simulate a thermal system like the one depicted in the attached file?

Thermal System

I appreciate any help. Thank you!

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a shopping question, and the underlying topic (physics/thermodynamics) would fit better on physics.SE. – LShaver Jan 1 '17 at 3:08

    Given the specificity of the question, I think Engineering.SE would be a better choice. To the OP: Delete from here, and repost there. That way it doesn't hang around here when it gets closed. Moderator: Can it just be moved? – Sherwood Botsford Jan 2 '17 at 18:35
  • @SherwoodBotsford The question is too old to migrate unfortunately. – Earthliŋ Jan 3 '17 at 9:33

Any good list of best choices are likely to include DWSIM, CALPHAD, COCO simulator, and OpenModelica. These four are open source, so you won't need to sacrifice cash to try them. They have varied features, but they all handle some form of Process Simulation with chemical and thermodynamic components.
