Abstract: In this research, we performed the acquisition of the temperature generated in the rice drying process paddy to later carry out its identification, simulation and validation of the obtained model. The data generated by the model are compared with the data emanating from the process from which the analysis is performed. The drying process of paddy rice consists of generating a moisture loss of 12% rice and is done through a line towers system in which air is injected at a specific temperature and a constant flow of air over the rice which in each tower is developing a programmed movement. The drying of the rice in the tower No. 1 takes approximately 1 h and 20 min and is very important for the drying process because it must reach a moisture loss of at least 5% and the rice must be homogenized with moisture minimizing the dispersion of that moisture that is mainly caused by the diversity of paddy rice suppliers. This study presents results on the recommendations that the operator tower No. 1 must carry out in relation to the air temperature during the drying process to reach a greater loss of humidity without increasing the grain temperature above 32°C because you can try the quality of the rice. This study does not reach the controller calculation process simply remains in the collection and model validation.
