Refrigerator Optimal Scheduling to Minimize the Cost of Operation


Abstract



The cost optimal scheduling of a household refrigerator is presented in this work. The fundamental approach is the model predictive control methodology applied to the piecewise affine model of the refrigerator. The optimisation could not be solved using off-the-shelf tools, e.g. Multi-Parametric Toolbox, so a binary treebased optimal scheduling algorithm has been developed for this problem.
