The horticultural sector has become an increasingly important sector of food production, for which greenhouse climate control plays a
vital role in improving its sustainability. One of the methods to control the greenhouse climate is Model Predictive Control, which can be
optimized through a branch and bound algorithm. The application of the algorithm in literature is examined and analyzed through small examples, and later extended to greenhouse climate simulation. A
comparison is made of various alternative objective functions available in literature. Subsequently, a modidified version of the B&B algorithm is presented, which reduces the number of node evaluations required for optimization. Finally, three alternative algorithms are developed and compared to consider the optimization problem from a discrete to a continuous control space.
