Reusable Control Algorithms are an important base for reusable Control Software. They are highly welcomed in every control application, so in building automation, too. Building automation is used throughout the paper to illustrate the results by a typical application domain. The paper outlines the general development process of control algorithms and discusses the possibilities to adapt them to generic methods. Basically, there are two main fields in the process to benefit from generic parts, one in reusing control algorithms or parts of them, the other one in the validation process which involves modelling and simulation the physical behaviour of the domain process.

Keywords: control algorithms, reuse, building automation, generic modeling.
