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.Signals derived from the fermentors are interfaced to two PCMs, one serving as a backup for the other. ... Most process interventions (e.g., opening/closing valves, changing setpoints, placing loops in auto or manual, changing loop tuning ... The master computer of this system is a VAX 1 1/750 and is referred to as the host.
