Modelling evaporative cooling in greenhouses under central Mexican conditions

This study was conducted to investigate the technical feasibility of evaporative cooling under Central Mexican conditions. This study was carried out by means of simulations of different evaporative cooling methods (ECMs) coupled to a validated greenhouse model fed with local meteorological data during the warm season of the year.

Using liquid nitrogen as a cooling agent resulted in temperatures lower than those outside under climatic conditions with high atmospheric humidity, without raising the RH in the greenhouse. The maximum economic effectiveness was achieved by the a...
