- To load external input data, columns should be provided in the following order: time, pH, DO, temperature, solar radiation. Download this file as an example: reactor_data.txt
Matlab-based Simulation Tool for Raceway Photobioreactors
This is a free tool to simulate the whole dynamics behavior of a raceway photobioreactor. Open-loop simulations can be done based on experimental data from the different seasons of the year. Moreover, closed-loop simulations can be also performed by using different control approaches: on-off control, PID control or selective control, for both, pH and dissolved oxygen variables. Notice that this simulator includes are the balances of the process along the time and the space.
This simulator is a standalone application developed using Matlab. It is not required to have Matlab installed in the computer. However, the user needs to install the Matlab Runtime that can be download for free from the following website:
