After working on this exercise you will be able to...

1. prepare x(D) and s(D) diagrams for chemostat cultures starting from experimental data.

2. predict the influence of s_{in} and of the growth parameters on x(D) and s(D) curves.

1 | Determine the nature of the task |
||

2 | Open the x,s(D) simulation (Excel) | Simulation > Kontinuierliche Kultur - Chemostat > Files | |

3 | Introduce under "experimental data" the values determined by Kayser et al. (2005). |
||

4 | Introduce under parameter 1 and 2 the substrate concentration in the medium feed s |
||

5 | Model the experimental x,s(D) data by successively changing the growth parameters. | ||

6 | Based on the results of your fitting formulate a mathematical model to describe the experimental results of Kayser et al. (2005). | ||

7 | Answer the question. |
