in this paper, the problem of optimal climate control of a potato storage facility exploiting favourable weather conditions is considered. A receding horizon optimal controller, allowing incorporation of real-time weather forecasts and input/state constraints and based on a reduced-order model, is chosen to evaluate the strategy in simulation. From the results, given the real-time weather forecasts from the Dutch weather office HWS, it appears that a significant reduction of ventilation costs and costs related to the constraint violation is possible when anticipating on future weather conditions.
