A cost-optimal model predictive scheduling algorithm is presented that operates in a day-ahead market. The underlying optimizer is a heuristic branch and bound algorithm that finds the constrained optimal scheduling of a freezer with respect to hourly changing energy price. The method is also able to iteratively re-estimate the heat capacity of the freezer. Simulation experiments were performed on a freezer model identified from measurement data. Results show that the proposed algorithm successfully de- creased the cost of operation, however the computational complexity increases when the price is growing. The proposed method can be generalized for home appliances of different kind.
