- Offered for Year: 2017/18
- Module Leader(s): Professor Jarka Glassey
- Lecturer: Dr Mark Willis
- Owning School: Engineering
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 1 Credit Value:||10|
This module is designed to provide understanding of fundamental control and modelling concepts and their application in bioprocessing systems. These issues will be complemented by the introduction of engineering appreciation of bioprocesses.
Outline Of Syllabus
Cell growth and models of growth kinetics. Types of bioreactors. Mass and heat transfer in bioreactors. Bioreactor design and scale-up. Instrumentation and control of bioreactors. Basic concepts of dynamics and control, P/PI/PID controller characteristics, tuning of controllers
