A Control System on Soil Temperature


Article Preview

The soil’s temperature plays an important role of soil ecology research. In order to gain and control soil’ temperature. A control system is proposed for soil’s temperature. And a new control algorithm which is based on the PID algorithm is designed in the control system to handle the complex change of the soil’s temperature. It does not need to know the mathematical model of soil’s temperature. At last, the control result is analyzed in this paper. The result shows that the soil’s temperature is controlled ideal by this control system which is accurate to 0.5°C.
