Bioreactor modeling and simulation

ChE-320

Lecturer(s) :

Hatzimanikatis Vassily

Language:

English

Summary

The course of Bioreactor modeling and simulation focuses on the principles of algorithmic design and analysis of biochemical reactors. The application of these designed reactors would be in the production line of the of pharmaceutical, biotech and chemical industries.

Content

' Introduction to the enzyme and microbial kinetics
' Modeling and simulation of bioreactors

' Application of chemical engineering design principles

Keywords

Bioreactor, enzymatic reactions, design and modeling, optimization

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Biochemical engineering
Introduction to chemical engineering

Important concepts to start the course

Modeling
Differential equations

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

The course is given in a computer room. The students form groups of 3. The background theory is given in slide
presentation. Afterwards the students are assisted to solve the exercises of the project by using MATLAB. Special
workshops of relevant toolboxes of MATLAB might take place.

Expected student activities

Each group collaborates to effectively solve the exercises of the project and produce every 2nd week project reports
focusing on the background theory of design and analysis of biochemical reactors.

Assessment methods

There will be 5 project given throughout the semester each one containing 2 to 3 problems for implementing algorithmic
techniques and solving problems in MATLAB environment.
Grading will be based on the successfulness of completion of the problems of all the projects. A breakdown of the
grading is given as follows:
Exercises: 4/6
Code format, Clarity of presentation of results: 2/6
Bonus: +0.5/6

Supervision

Office hours Yes
Assistants Yes
Forum No
