  author={Kresten K. S\orensen and Morten J. Skovrup and Lars Jessen and Jakob Stoustrup},
This paper presents the modeling of a refrigeration contain er for use as a reference for energy-optimizing controller design. The model is based on first principles in order to cons erve mass and energy, but various assumptions are used to simplify the equations, resulting in a unified model for th e Star Cool refrigeration unit, the container and the cargo. Comparisons between simulations using the model and measur ements from a real container show an average error of less than±1K on the… CONTINUE READING
