GREENHOUSE ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL SYSTEM WITH A CROP MODEL AND AN EXPERT SYSTEM

A. Kano, H. Shimaji
Most greenhouse controllers are for automating greenhouse operation, and few crop models and expert systems have been utilized in greenhouse control programs to maximize the production of the crop grown in the greenhouse. This paper shows a way of controlling the greenhouse environment using a built-in crop model and an expert system.

The new control system produced reasonable temperature set values. Although the absolute values from the system needs to be verified by sequential, seasonal experiments, it showed the potential for automation in the optimization of greenhouse production.
