Adaptive control for optimizing microalgae production


In this paper, we propose a nonlinear adaptive controller for light-limited microalgae culture. This controller regulates the light absorption factor, defined by the ratio between the incident light and the light at the bottom of the reactor. Then, we propose a set-point for the light absorption factor which allows to optimize biomass productivity under constant illumination. Finally, we show by numerical simulation that the adaptive controller can be used to obtain near optimal productivity under day-night cycles.
