Giving an overview of the challenges in the control of bioprocesses, this comprehensive book presents key results in various fields, including: dynamic modeling; dynamic properties of bioprocess models; software sensors designed for the on-line estimation of parameters and state variables; control and supervision of bioprocesses.
Denis Dochain is a Professor at the CESAME (Centre for Systems Engineering and Applied Mechanics) of the Universite Catholique de Louvain and Honorary Research Director of the FNRS (Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique, National Fund for Scientific Research), France. He is associate editor of Automatica, the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control and the Journal of Process Control.
