The paper presents a proposed objective function for the operation of a Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage system. The proposed function is based on technologicaleconomic assumptions. The mathematical models of the main elements of the system were built and used for choosing the optimal system design. Based on the chosen design point and by using the models, the simulation of the operation of the whole system was done for randomly generated outside temperatures. The proposed methodology and obtained relationships can be readily used for control purposes, constituting Model Predicted Control (MPC).
