There are appreciable losses in crop output at all the stages in grain production like harvesting, transportation, storage, etc. To reduce grain loss during the harvesting process, it is desirable to effectively control the header height of the combine harvester. The desired header height control is able to follow the shape of the terrain and reject disturbances from the ground. This paper presents an optimal state feedback LQR controller to achieve the control objectives. By properly defining… CONTINUE READING
