1 3 rd International Conference Research & Innovation in Engineering COMAT October 2014, Braşov, Romania THEORETICAL OVERALL ENERGY BALANCE IN A GREENHOUSE FOR FLOWERS Bodolan Ciprian 1, Gh. Brătucu 2 1 Transilvania University of Brasov, Braşov, ROMANIA, 2 Transilvania University of Brasov, Braşov, ROMANIA, Abstract: The meteorological factors participate in the formation of the energetic balance influencing the exchange of heat and air circulation in greenhouses. Building type, orientation, size and location of the greenhouses are obviously conditioned by weather elements. Exists a close connection between the action of internal and external climatic factors in the construction of greenhouses, with many implications for economic, technological and biological, to be considered in drafting greenhouses and specialized studies. To calculate the overall balance should take into account the heating balance, the radiative balance and the energy required to sweat, evaporation, the sensible heat of air and soil as well as the stored energy in the process of formation of assimilates through photosynthesis. Keywords: greenhouse, energy, balance, flowers Introduction In the design and operation of greenhouses, as well as dimensioning the heating installations of such, the energy balance occupies a central place. With this we can determine any changes in the greenhouse microclimate, with also the possibility of determining the size of heat loss. In greenhouses, heat consumption is related to heat loss, which appears in the expression of equality: Q cons. = Q loss. (1) The higher heat losses are, the greater the consumption of heat is, up to achieves equality between them, conditioned by optimum heat regime that cultivated plants grow up and develop. So, the energy balance can be simplified formula: Q cons. = Q rad. + Q rad. + Q cond. Q rad.s. (2) Figure 1: Simplified energy balance components 252

4 (12) Where: R abs. - Radiation absorbed by plant and soil; E p - plant transpiration; E a - intercepted water evaporation due to irrigation; E s - water evaporation from the soil; V p - air sensible heat taken from plants and soil; V s - sensible heat taken from the ground; F - energy from photosynthesis. All of these components of energy balance are expressed in kcal / m 2 / h. To determine the radiation absorbed by plant and soil we used the following expression: (13) - coefficient of heat transfer due to the radiation; value used in the calculations is 5 kcal / m 2 h C; C 2 radiation measured with pyrometer located near top of plant C 3 radiation measured with pyrometer located at a greater height above the vegetation. However in the greenhouse determine the penetration of light by using the following equation: P t - penetration of light in the greenhouse; C 1 radiation measured with pyrometer above the greenhouse. Total evaporation is given by: Total evaporation in greenhouses is determined by the expression: E t - in kcal / m2h N a - number of kilos of dry air; X b - the amount of moisture in the outside air, g / kg; X k - the amount of moisture in the air given by the fan, g / kg; C e - heat of evaporation, kcal / kg; A - area of the ground covered in m2. Determination of moisture content of the outside air or the one added by the fan is made with the Mollier diagram (figure 3). The other elements of the total evaporation balance are determined by the model below. (14) (15) (16) Figure 3: Mollier's diagram for determining the relative humidity of the air. 255

5 Soil evaporation (E s ) is determined by gravimetric means; for example weigh in a cymbal with a 20cm diameter approx. 2cm home soil, considering that it is enlightening for short observation period of one day. Values of E s are shown in the table below: Table 1: Soil evaporation in mm (after Spoelstrav. d. Post and Hopmans) Day period (hour) Place of observation from 9 to 13:30 from 13:30 to 15:30 alley section 1 layer average 5 alley section 2 layer 0,4 0,8 1,0 average 0,9 0,15 0,0 Irrigation water evaporation (E a ) was determined experimentally by Spoelstrav and Hopmans by intercepting the water from a plant leaves in function of artificial rain intensity. Starting from to the maximum value of R abs = 400 kcal / m 2 the artificial rain intensity given by sprinkler was set at 0.2 mm / h and time duration of watering was set at 1.5 minutes, with an interval of 6 minutes paused. Taking into account the water that drains from the leaves, it was estimated that 20% of intercepted water evaporates so, it is estimated at a value of 100 kcal / m 2 h. Evaporation plant is calculated by subtracting the total evaporation E s and E a. The total energy balance, in addition to the terms of evaporation, evapo-transpiration and the radiation other related terms appeared such as sensible heat balance: (17) Where: V t - total sensible heat; V c - heat sensitive cornice V p - air sensible heat taken from plant and soil; V s - sensible heat taken from the ground. Compared to the other terms in equation (17) it is found that the term V c is much smaller and therefore negligible. In this review, the sensible heat term Vp is central. Depending on how the greenhouse ventilation is made (horizontal or vertical) one can determine the heat taken from the ground and from other parts of the building. The sensible heat is given by the product of the total amount of ventilation, the difference of temperature between ventilated and outer air and the specific heat of air, (18) C a - specific heat of air in kcal / m 3 C; Q - the greenhouse ventilation in m 3 / h; - the difference of temperature between ventilated and outer air C. The formation heat of assimilates F is calculated after were measured the amounts of CO 2 taken up by plants from the greenhouse air. The total energy balance of a greenhouse make obviously, how radiation energy absorbed is used for transpiration, evaporation, sensible heat of the air and warming the soil as well as the stored energy in the process of formation of assimilates through photosynthesis. 3. CONCLUSION 1. In the design and operation of greenhouses, as well as dimensioning the heating installations of such, the energy balance occupies a central place. With this we can determine any changes in the greenhouse microclimate, with also the possibility of determining the size of heat loss. 256

6 2. In greenhouses coated with polyethylene there is a possibility in case of frost or during the night that temperatures will fall below values recorded in the atmosphere. 3. Determination of moisture content of the outside air or the one added by the fan is made with the Mollier diagram 4. The total energy balance of a greenhouse make obviously, how radiation energy absorbed is used for transpiration, evaporation, sensible heat of the air and warming the soil as well as the stored energy in the process of formation of assimilates through photosynthesis. 4.
