Modelling and PIP control design for open top chambers

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 0967-0661

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.
