A Decentralised Multi-parametric Model Predictive Control Study for a Domestic Heat and Power Cogeneration System
Additional Document Info
2015 Elsevier B.V. The rising interest in heat and power cogeneration, especially in the residential sector, the cost-effectiveness of its operation and environmentally friendly characteristics require attention from both an operational and a design optimisation point of view. In this work, a decentralised control optimisation approach is presented and applied on a natural gas powered, internal combustion engine equipped, domestic cogeneration plant. The approach allows us to not only capture the behaviour of the overall system but also take into account its different operational objectives in terms of either heat or power generation driven production.
