Carnot Version 6.3, 2018 for Simulink R2016b under BSD 3-Clause License
CARNOT is a toolbox extension for MATLAB SIMULINK. It is a tool for the calculation and simulation of the thermal components of HVAC systems with regards to conventional and regenerative elements. The CARNOT Toolbox is a library of typical components of these systems. It is organized in Blocksets like the SIMULINK Library itself. The handling of the blocks is exactly the same as in SIMULINK, so that users familiar with SIMULINK can directly use the new Blocksets in the same way.

I've been using this toolbox for years and can say it's a easy to use, comprehensive and well maintained toolbox. The international community of users (Universities, companies...) provide a constant extension of the tool and add new high-quality content regulary.
