Abstract

The lack of suitable mathematical models or the difficulties of applying them in biotechnological process control (unmeasurable model variables, model valid for a limited range of process parameters only etc.) often result in a sophisticated control algorithm. Since this complex control not only requires numerical computations, but problem-solving ability as well, it can be implemented in software only in a clumsy and unnatural way. This paper presents a fermentor control system where new programming paradigms are applied to solve the above problems. The proposed programming tools (data-flow network and rule based system) make it possible to applicate incompletely formalized knowledge in addition to mathematical models. Furthermore, since this new programming style is very descriptive, programming becomes so simple that biotechnological control engineers with minimal programming skills are able to create a dedicated control system by themselves.
