Development of Multivariate Measurement and Control System of Threshing Cylinder in Combine Harvester
Threshing cylinder is a core component of combine harvester which determines the working performance of the entire machine and also consumes a majority of the whole combine harvester’s power. In this paper, a multivariate measurement and control system was established. The control algorithms were developed by linear regression theory and abundant experimental data. The Field trials were conducted in several major grain producing areas in China for data acquisition. Practical application indicated that the developed multivariate measurement and control system could meet the demand of optimal operation of threshing cylinder. The working performance and efficiency of combine harvester was improved.
