Programma MeanPTC is a tool for computing the frequency distribution of the incidence angle on the mirrors composing a given solar
linear collector, parabolic-trough or linear Fresnel, as well as the frequency distribution of the acceptance angle of the receiver viewed by each point
MeanPTC is C++ written and provided with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) based on Qt library; the graphs of the frequency distribution of incidence and acceptance
angle are drawn by means of the Qwt library.
The software is distributed as open-source, under the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation version 3.
