The document presents the Refrigeration System Control Problem selected for the Benchmark PID 2018. The Refrigeration System and its control are presented in Section 2. The attention is first focused on the most general problem and then the MIMO problem is addressed. Also, some details about the dynamic modelling of vapour compression refrigeration systems are given. Sections 3 and 4 describe how the test and comparative evaluation of multivariable PID controllers are carried out.
This document is an appendix to the main document. It contains a brief description of the MATLAB & Simulink files provided in the Benchmark PID 2018.
The rar file, containing the *.slx, *.m, *.p, *.mat, *.mexw64, *.dll files provided by the authors to approach the Refrigeration System control problem.
