[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: The mathematical model of baseboard heater in transent period

I had done the optimization for the simulation just for one winter 
design day. I had set that the outside temperature is the same whole 

The parameters that I have optimized are the following: insulation 
thickness (just in the outside walls), UA values for the baseboard 
heater:water:convetive (in my simulation I have 9 baseboard heaters 
and due to that I have 9 UA parameters for the optimization), sistem 
status variable (on/off or is the baseboard heaters are in use or 
no), the supply water temperature (I involved the same variable for 
the each hour), and the set value of indoor temperature.

The system status parameter has been set to optimize just out of 
working period. Also, the set value of indoor temperature has been 
set to optimize out of working period.

I have optimized three parameters that are defined with the schadule.

I hope that I defined my problem better to you and that you can help 

Thank you in advance
