Modeling and Calibration of Combine, Impact Plate, Yield Sensors 2010-01-2002

An effort was undertaken to capture the relationship between the output of mass flow sensors and the input rate of mass flow for harvesting combines with yield monitors. Different types of models were considered that characterize this relationship and that can be applied to a variety of mass flow sensor technologies. Issues such as implementation during harvesting and calibration of these sensors and models were explored. Additionally, an example of such a model and its validation against experimental data was examined. For small-scale laboratory experiments, the model was shown to closely capture the general trend of the data as well as to yield reasonable estimates of the mass flowing through the system based on the sensor output. For large-scale experiments, the model was able to be fitted to the experimental data, and to estimate mass flow rate with relatively low errors across a variety of operating conditions.
