Presents a calculation method for optimal dynamic control utilising the thermal effect to minimise specific objective functions, namely 1) annual energy consumption, 2) annual peak energy demand through a year, and 3) annual energy cost. Dynamic programming was used as an optimisation algorithm for the first two objective functions. The last was dealt with as a multi-objective optimisation composed of two criteria (annual energy consumption and peak energy demand). Also presents new calculation procedures intended to reduce computational efforts.
