AbstractThis thesis discusses the application of the bond graph modeling technique directly coded into the Dynamic Modeling Language (DYMOLA) for simulating a solar-heated house. Scientists throughout the years have investigated the exploitation of solar radiation for space heating. In this thesis, the physical behavior of such a system is modeled and simulated in a convenient, robust and fast manner. The bond graph modeling methodology has found widespread use in a wide range of systems. DYMOLA is a modeling language well suited to represent bond graphs. DYMOLA is a program generator that can map a topological system description, such as a bond graph, into a state-space description expressed in the form of a DESIRE simulation program.
