ABSTRACT
Greenhouses are used for the main purpose of improving the environmental conditions in which plants are grown. There are many parameters can affect the growing of plants inside greenhouse, such as air temperature and relative humidity. The adjustment of these parameters is achieved by selecting appropriate control actions. This work proposes a controlling technique for greenhouse indoor temperature and relative humidity. The proposed greenhouse cooling system temperature controller is designed to adjust the air volume flow rate in pad-fan cooling system to fix the greenhouse indoor temperature at 20?C and 70% relative humidity. The designed control technique is realized to ensure the required and continuous operation of the greenhouse. Moreover, this work present, a complete mathematical modeling and simulation of cooling system is introduced. In addition, a computer model based on MATLAB SIMULINK software has been used to predict the temperature and relative humidity profiles inside the greenhouse. The results are realized the requirements of the greenhouse cooling system environment.
