Lees, M. J. and Taylor, C. James and Young, Peter C. and Chotai, Arunkumar (1998) Modelling and PIP control design for open top chambers. Control Engineering Practice, 6 (10). pp. 1209-1216. ISSN 0967-0661Full text not available from this repository.
The paper first describes the identification of a control model for carbon dioxide concentration in an open-top chamber (OTC) used in plant physiology atmospheric change experiments. This model is then employed in the design of a gain-scheduled controller utilising the Proportional-Integral-Plus (PIP) control design methodology developed by Young et al. (1987). The system has been evaluated in a number of field trials, yielding good control, well within the required design specifications.
