The talk will give an introduction to the recent PhD project “Model predictive control for solar thermal cooling systems” of Adrian Bürger, graduate of Karlsruhe University of applied sciences (HsKa). The aim of this cooperation project is an online optimal control implementation for a solar thermal cooling system built at HsKa, based on model predictive control. Besides the general setup of the installation whose core element is an adsorption cooling machine, the talk will briefly introduce the several work packages of the project, and take approx. 15 minutes.
