Set desired water temperature for solar thermal model?

I want to model a solar thermal collector system which produces up to 170 degF hot water. Is it possible to set a custom desired hot water temperature in SAM? Can this desired hot water be given different values for each month?

Thank you.

Dear Jarett,

The "Auxiliary Set Temp" determines the temperature of water delivered by the system. It is not possible to specify a different set temperature for each month.

Best regards,
Paul.

If my auxiliary system is a tankless hot water heater, what value should I list for Auxiliary Volume? Should I list the same as the Solar Tank Storage Volume?
