The study is focussed on the sensibility of optimal start/stop control of hydronic heating systems on boiler and radiator sizing, supply temperature lift, and the building occupancy pattern. For the prediction of optimal start/stop times the recursive least squares method and the gradient method are evaluated. Computer simulation is applied on the example of an office building equipped with an hydronic heating system.
