Abstract:

The thermal analysis of greenhouse structures is required to predict the inside microclimate of the greenhouse. A MATLAB based program was developed to predict the inside temperature of a Sawtooth shape greenhouse in Kharagpur. The model inputs are ambient air temperature, outside and inside wind speed, inside soil temperature and outside air temperature. The model was simulated for different percentages of shadings and ventilation and validated with the actual inside air temperature and found NSE 0.55 for 25% shading and 10% ventilation conditions. The model results also show that the variation of the temperature inside the greenhouse depends upon the percentage of shading and ventilation percentage of the greenhouse.
