Heating curve for heating production systems in buildings presents the curve of the variation of the heating set temperature in function of the outdoor temperature. This application is known as weather compensation in heating mode. It allows to adjust the heating temperature medium by increasing it with the drop of the outdoor temperature and decreasing it in the opposite case. This adjustment provides a simple and cost effective solution to improve the thermal comfort in buildings and reduce the operation cost. This also allows to improve the efficiency of the thermodynamic system like heat pumps for example.[1] [2] [3]
