This work introduces a methodology for the solution of reactive scheduling problems in small-scale fuel cell systems that cogenerate heat and power. The proposed approach successfully transforms the on-line optimization problem into a closed-loop control problem. In brief, a multiparametric programming problem is formulated and solved once and off-line, and afterwards a receding horizon-like approach is applied for the online scheduling by performing just function evaluations and avoiding on-line ...
