|Hydraulic Connection of Consumer Circuits|
The article discusses in detail the various hydraulic connections of consumer circuits of heating systems. It presents the advantages and disadvantages of the different designs as well as the suitability of using individual hydraulic connections. A sample example of a control valve design is given for almost every connection method.

|Optimisation of the Cooling Plant of the Shopping Centre|
The article deals with optimizing the operation of the cooling plant with respect to electricity consumption. Optimization compares several variants of operation (switching of individual sources of cold) and two basic operating modes. The results are presented both by the predicted cooling factors of the plant room and by the sa vings potential obtained from the measured required cooling loa d of the building.

|System for Autonomous Production of Renewable Electricity and Heat Part 2: Simulation and Experiment|
The second part of the contribution deals with simulations and real experiments concerning the operation control of an autonomous power and heat generation system. The system consists of a Wave OR C cogeneration unit, photovoltaic panels, battery storage and a virtual heat storage. The whole system is located at the University Centre for Energy Efficient Buildings of the Czech Technical University in Prague. The aim of the experiment is to maintain the heat and electricity supply and minimize the operating costs with the highest possible efficienc y of the whole system.

|Experimental Verification of a Simulation Model of a Hot Water Heater with Direct Heating|
The paper presents the assessment of the operational behaviour of the heater depending on the hot water consumption profile. It is based on previous work where a simulation model of a hot water heater with direct heating was described. The behaviour of the simulation model in the TRN SYS environment is verified by experimental measurements.
