Online knowledge session Energy Curtain Control

We are organizing an online knowledge session that addresses the following question: How can I keep a stable climate during the opening and closing of my energy screens? The session will be held on Tuesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 16. During this session, Priva consultant Paul Jense will provide tips & tricks about how to keep the greenhouse climate stable during opening and closing of the energy curtains, by using step control.

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!
