A model of the building heating system, consisting of energy source, a distributed automatic control system, elements of individual heating unit and heating system is designed. Application Simulink of mathematical package Matlab is selected as a platform for the model. There are the specialized application Simscape libraries in aggregate with a wide range of Matlab mathematical tools allow to apply the “acausal” modeling concept. The conducted research of single-pipe heating system configuration and automatic control system allowed comparing the integral parameters of the systems with local and individual regulation. The results of research of thermal condition premises, situated in the extreme movement direction of the coolant are given. The conclusions about the possibility of increasing the operational efficiency of single-pipe heating system configuration in the implementation of distributed control systems are presented.
