The purpose of this volume is to describe the components, assembly, and implementation of computer-based process control systems. Presented in two sections, it illustrates how such systems have been used to monitor and control industrial fermentation processes as a means to improve our understanding of product biosynthesis. This book covers the fields of indirect parameter estimation and fermentation-specific control algorithms. It also includes chapters which describe system architecture and process application, process control, on-line liquid sampling and computer system architecture. This is an ideal source for anyone involved with biotechnology, bioengineering, microbial technology, chemical engineering, and computer control.At the time of purchase, it was not possible to do batch sequencing on the Honeywell TDC-2000 in a cost effective manner. ... For example, a valve such as the harvest valve, which is only opened once a batch, was deliberately kept under manual operation. ... In this way an event can be used to trigger a specific instruction, for example, a glucose feed can be started at a specific oxygen uptake rate.
