The development of a mathematical model to aid in dynamically determining the local optimal management procedures to minimize the energy cost in low temperature grain drying systems is presented. This model contains a non-equilibrium corn drying simulation and submodels for temperature forecasting, energy usage, and dry matter loss. Using the critical path method of optimization for network flow problems, a local minimum energy cost mode that does not have a high potential for spoiling the corn is selected for each time step throughout the entire drying period.
