Microclimate control of a greenhouse by adaptive Generalized Linear Quadratic strategy

Mohamed Essahafi, Mustapha Ait Lafkih


To highlight the conceptual aspects related to the implementation of techniques optimal control in the form state, we present in this paper, the identification and control of the temperature and humidity of the air inside a greenhouse. Using respectively an online identification based on the recursive least squares with forgotten Factor method and the multivariable adaptive linear quadratic Gaussian approach which the advanced technique (LQG) is presented.  The design of this controller parameters is based on state models identified directly from measured greenhouse data. hence the performances of the controller developed are illustrated by different tests and simulations on identified models of a greenhouse. Discussions on the results obtained are then processed in the paper to show the effectiveness of the controller in terms of stability and optimization of the cost of control.
