In this work; we were interested in the respect of the drying parameters, namely the recommended temperature range and the extraction of the moisture content during the drying of maize, mahogany nuts, shea nuts or by-products resulting from the processing of the mango. The thermal analysis of the drying system leads us to develop a system of regulation and thermal compensation in order to avoid the calcinations of the finished product and to respect the physicochemical parameters of the material. It must be emphasized that there are several agricultural products and their physicochemical parameters are not the same. Therefore the temperature ranges will be selected from the control system and compensation while taking into account the quality of said products. Note also that this study is conducted in a Sahelian country where sunshine is important and it becomes interesting to proceed to a regulation and a thermal compensation. To do this, we designed the control system and thermal compensation while taking into account the drying temperature.
