Photobioreactor Control System

Main initial activity of AlgEn is development of photobioreactor control system.

In order to gain desirable outputs it is advisable to monitor the process:

  • regulation of CO2 concentration, mixing, measurement of process variables (pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, optical density)
  • shared measurements of nutrient concentrations using a system of ISE
  • fluorescence measurements (distinguishing Chlorophyll, Phycocyanin, Xantophill, Phycoerythrin) – early warning of cyanobacteria
  • logging of all measurements and controlled values for further analysis
  • open technologies enable further extensions, modification and customization of experimental processes
  • commercially available of-the-shelf components (pumps, valves, sensors, and electronics)
