[en] A computer simulation program for a dwelling heating installation has been developed and tested. It uses principles and defined parameters, with simplifications to reduce the program size and execution time. Integration of the differential equations describing the heat transfer in the system is performed with constant time steps (explicit scheme). The program is utilized to study the performance of the heating system and to perform parametric studies to determine the effects of changes in various parameters on performance. The influence of the time increment, thermal insulation, heat capacity and of other parameters on system performance has been analyzed. Included in the regulation software of a control system, the program is a design tool to optimize regulation and help in developing and testing modern regulators.
