Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING OPTIMAL LIGHT-CO2 COMBINATIONS FOR PLANT PRODUCTION
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES PERMETTANT L'OBTENTION DE COMBINAISONS OPTIMALES DE LUMIERE ET DE CO2 POUR LA PRODUCTION DE VEGETAUX
Abstract
(EN) Method and system for optimizing plant production in a cost effective manner. System (100) includes a processor (102) in communication with resource controllers (110, 112) for controlling resources (106, 108) such as, for example, lighting and carbon dioxide. Each resource has a cost that varies temporally or with other factors. The processor implements an algorithm that receives a desired plant production rate and other input, such as operating conditions of the system and environment, and determines amounts of each resource to expend consistent with plant production goals and resource costs.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système permettant d'optimiser la production de végétaux de manière efficace en termes de coûts. Ledit système (100) comprend une unité de traitement (102) en communication avec des unités de commande de ressources (110, 112) permettant de réguler des ressources (106, 108) du type, par exemple, éclairage et dioxyde de carbone. Chaque ressource a un coût qui varie dans le temps ou en fonction d'autres facteurs. L'unité de traitement met en oeuvre un algorithme qui reçoit un taux de production de végétaux souhaité et d'autres entrées, telles que les conditions de fonctionnement du système et d'environnement, et détermine les quantités de chacune de ces ressources à utiliser de manière cohérente avec les objectifs de production de végétaux et les coûts des ressources.
