    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Usually, control design takes place after the plant has been designed. However, the performance of the plant connected to the controller might be improved by simultaneous design of the plant and the controller. In this paper, expressions are deduced that describe the dynamics of a controlled plant (a bulk storage room) and its design criteria. These expressions contain all the physical system parameters, and give insight on how the system performance (in terms of energy usage and temperature uniformity) depends on the design parameters (these are the bulk height and the ventilator- and heat exchanger capacity). This insight gives guidelines for optimal storage room design. The physical relations that could not be found in the literature were identified experimentally.
