Knowledge session ‘A stable climate by using step control'Closing and particularly opening the energy curtains has a very huge impact on the greenhouse climate and its controls; a significant amount of cold air will then be mixed with the greenhouse air when the curtains open in the morning.
We often see that in many cases, the energy curtains open either too aggressively or too economically. Too aggressive results in cold air reaching the heads of the crop, too economical results in reduced light input.” So, what is the right thing to do regarding opening and closing the energy curtains, without having to continually adjust the settings manually? We are happy to guide you in the right direction during the online knowledge session.
Paul: “When the energy curtain is allowed to open, it is using the settings in the step control of Priva Intégro and Priva Connext to do so. Also, the heating installation will automatically increase in temperature to compensate the expected energy loss. Because of this, the greenhouse temperature may rise as a result. To make sure the vents will not react to this temporary temperature increase, the ventilation temperature will increase as well. I will explain this step control in more detail during the online knowledge session!” During the sessions, different Priva departments are represented, so feel free to ask any questions you have!
