M7.5. SIMULINK Model File

In order to save time on constructing your block diagram, copy the block for the bioreactor from the textbook web page (see Figure M7-2)

Figure M7-2. SIMULINK block diagram for bioreactor.

I recommend that you make your proportional and integral terms in the PID controller a function of lambda (λ). Then, before each simulation run, you merely have to type in a new lambda in the MATLAB window, rather than typing in new PI parameters. Always realize that the integral term in the default SIMULINK PID block is our kcI.

Notice that the SIMULINK diagram contains two extra blocks. The transport delay block can ...
