We developed a technique for computer simulation of radiant transfer process in mirror-lens optical systems of solar simulators. In the given area of the reference plane of a solar simulator the distribution of irradiance and its non-uniformity as well as average irradiance and maximal angle of divergence of beam are calculated. Our results of calculation of the simulator with multi-modular optical system are presented.
