This report describes a greenhouse simulator. The described simulator is translated from a German description (Pohlheim and Heißner, 1996), and some minor modifications are introduced. The simulator is reimplemented in Java and is based on the original MatLab version. The purpose of the simulator is to explore various techniques for control of nonlinear systems. The greenhouse is controlled by four parameters, and the state is modeled by six non-linear differential equations. Translation information is provided to allow the reader to verify the equations and seek additional information in the original description.
