In this case study a fully symbolic design and modeling method are presented for blood glucose control of diabetic patients under intensive care using Mathematica. The analysis is based on a modified two-compartment model proposed by Bergman et al. (2). The applied feedback control law decoupling even the nonlinear model leads to a fully symbolic solution of the closed loop equations. The effectivity of the applied symbolic procedures being mostly built-in the new version of Control System Professional Suite (CSPS) Application of Mathematica have been demonstrated for controller design in case of a glucose control for treatment of diabetes mellitus and also presented for a numerical situation described in Juhász (8). The results are in good agreement with the earlier presented symbolic-numeric analysis by Benyó et al. (1).
