This paper discusses and presents a simple temperature prediction strategy for the domestic refrigerator. The main idea is to predict the duration it takes to the Cold chamber temperature to reach the thresholds according to the state of the compressor and to the last temperature measurements. The experiments are conducted at SYSLAB facility at DTU Risø Campus having a set of refrigerators working at different set point temperatures, with different ambient temperatures and under different thermal load conditions. The prediction strategy is tested using a set of different refrigerators in order to validate the performances. The challenges to calculate the time with less error pronouncement in temperature, regulating power supply and its duration are also discussed.
