A STRATEGY FOR CALCULATING THE MAXIMUM COOLING LOAD OF A GREENHOUSE
Simulations were performed with this model. The outside weather conditions were inputs as boundary conditions while the output results were the removed heat at a pipe line or at a fan convector and its components such as heat transmission, heat transfer by ventilation etc. Some works of practical importance have been done :
- Weather conditions corresponding to the maximum cooling load were discussed and some idea of getting the data for the calculation were proposed.
- Relation between the cooling load and the time required for the inside air temperature drop from the point of cooling start to a set point was explicated.
- Heat transfer coefficients such as the cooling load coefficient (a parameter defined after the heating load coefficient), overall heat transmission coefficient etc. for the calculation of the maximum cooling load in nighttime were given.
