    Abstract

    In this paper, we propose an algorithm realizing minimum energy control for air conditioning. In the air conditioning system, control inputs are valve-open-value of cooler, heater and humidifier, and controlled variables are indoor temperature and humidity. That is, this system has three inputs and two outputs. The main step of the minimum energy algorithm is to switch two of the three actuators, depending on setpoints, for minimizing consumption energy. We apply this algorithm to a real plant, and show validity of the algorithm.
