Abstract

This work deals with modeling and operation optimization of lab-scale continuous biochemical reactor. Wastewater is feeding to reactor contaminated with different concentration of glucose. The reactor is non-linear with stochastic changing in optimum operating conditions. Simulated model could develop the process and generate extra-confirmed data. The selected process variables are: dilution rate (D), feed substrate concentration (Si), pH and temperature (T). Simulated model could develop the process and generate extra-confirmed data. The effect of D was observed within Si of 20 g/L, while pH and T are affecting within Si of 60 g/L.Si has major effect on dynamic characteristics of the reactor. Reasonable agreement has been found when compared the simulated result with the previous work. Optimization technique helps the decision maker to select best operating conditions. This could reduce the risk of experimental runs and consumed cost for operating and design. Global Genetic algorithm (GA) has been found more reliable than deterministic search for the bioreactor. Optimization results are based on maximizing biomass growth. Optimal results indicate that maximum biomass concentration (X) is 80.57 g/L could be obtained at high value of Si (197.56 g/L) and low D (0.1hr-1 ).Si is sensitive variable for stochastic mutation of biomass growth.
