Computer control of cell mass concentration in continuous culture.

*(English)*Zbl 0686.92024Summary: The performances of three types of cell mass control algorithms were tested experimentally in a continuously stirred tank biological reactor (CSTBR). While the performance of the PID controller was undesirable and parameter tuning was not easy, the extended least-squares self-tuning regulator (ELS-STR) and a bilinear model adaptive controller (BMAC) indicated excellent performances. Especially, the BMAC, based on a nonlinear predictor model with only one parameter to be identified, showed less excessive fluctuation of control action and better adaptation performance over the ELS-STR.
