The design of controllers for integrated building systems has been traditionally carried out using basic techniques validated frequently by simulation. However, the demands on occupants’ comfort, safety and energy consumption increase speedily as the current controllers used in buildings are not efficient and enough flexible to be adapted to any changes. To investigate such issues, this paper focuses mainly on the design of embedded control systems for integrated building plants. So therefore, the challenges of modeling embedded controller for building heating system are treated at higher-level of abstraction with the help of sophisticated tools and new development techniques. Particularity, this paper concerns the relevance and reliability of integrating distributed control and building performance simulation environments by run-time coupling, over TCP/IP protocol suite. In addition, this paper involves a case-study with an important setup where the simulated results are obtained within the use of run-time coupling approach.
