Optimal Control of Switched Systems Arising in Fermentation Processes
The book presents, in a systematic manner, the optimal controls under different mathematical models in fermentation processes. Variant mathematical models – i.e., those for multistage systems; switched autonomous systems; time-dependent and state-dependent switched systems; multistage time-delay systems and switched time-delay systems – for fed-batch fermentation processes are proposed and the theories and algorithms of their optimal control problems are studied and discussed. By putting forward novel methods and innovative tools, the book provides a state-of-the-art and comprehensive systematic treatment of optimal control problems arising in fermentation processes. It not only develops nonlinear dynamical system, optimal control theory and optimization algorithms, but can also help to increase productivity and provide valuable reference material on commercial fermentation processes.
Serves as a reference text for researchers working in the area of control and optimization helps engineers to learn the subject with full understanding and appreciationDistinguishes from all existing texts on the subject from its pedagogical spirit, namely, motivations before mathematics; mathematics tools are only introduced when needed and motivated All theoretical results and computational methods are proved in a friendly fashion
