Adaptive control of a glasshouse heating system. In: Energy in protected cultivation

, : Adaptive control of a glasshouse heating system. In: Energy in protected cultivation. Acta Horticulturae 76: 5 pp

An adaptive, i.e. self-tuning, computer control method for a glasshouse heating system is presented. The adaptation is based on a simple input-output model of the glasshouse heating dynamics, which is updated by an online estimation procedure.

For the control of a glasshouse heating system with lower and upper heating pipes an adaptive split-range control algorithm is presented.

An analysis with mathematical models shows that the divergence was caused by overshoot in the case of a hot...

The model shows that air movement in the crop depends on the balance of 3 forces: the unit weight o...
