The problem of optimizing the transmission capacity of a pipeline network is important for ensuring its operability. The problem arises at different stages of the network life cycle (design, optimization, development). The problem is to determine the diameters of the pipelines, the locations of the pumps and the heads on them, the locations of the regulators (flow and pressure) and their parameters. The article proposes a new algorithm based on dynamic programming, which implements an original approach to organizing a computational procedure. The general principles of the algorithm and the content of its steps do not depend on the purpose of the network and the composition of its equipment. The algorithm is versatile and allows one to optimize networks for various purposes. The proposed algorithm is implemented in the IRNET software. On its basis, calculations were made for the development of real district heating systems.
