Abstract

Abstract A proposal for the advanced control of a hybrid solar/gas air-conditioning system and its testing by simulation is presented. The proposal is based on a Predictive Controller that optimizes the operational costs by taking into account the costs of gas heating and the electrical consumption. The Constrained Mixed-Integer Predictive Control problem obtained is then solved using a formulation based on the duration of the states, which simplifies the numerical solution. The simulation at different times of the year is carried out in order to show the validity of the proposed approach
