Abstract Abstract: Harvested products inside a storage room are kept cool by a fan that blows air through a heat exchanger. The air and product temperature are regulated by switching the fan on and off. The corresponding mathematical model is nonlinear and discontinuous due to the switching of the fan. For control design, the model is approximated with a linear continuous model that has the switching time as input. For the approximated model, a controller that adjusts the switching time on every discrete time interval, is designed by classical design rules and tested on the original model by simulation.
