Title: Evaluation Of Optimization Techniques For An Extractive Alcoholic Fermentation Process
Author: Da Costa A.C.
Maciel Filho R.
Abstract: The mathematical optimization of a continuous alcoholic fermentation process combined with a flash column under vacuum was studied. The objective was to maximize % yield and productivity in the fermentor. The results using surface response analysis combined with modeling and simulation were compared withy those obtained when the problem was written as a nonlinear programming problem and was solved with a successive quadratic programming (SQP) technique. Two process models were evaluated when the process was optimized using the SQP technique. The first one is a deterministic model, whose kinetic parameters were experimentally determined as functions of the temperature, and the second is a statistical model obtained using the factorial design technique combined with simulation. Although the best result was the one obtained using the rigorous model, the values for productivity and % yield obtained using the simplified model are acceptable, and these models can be used when the development of a rigorous model is excessively difficult, slow, or expensive.
