Optimal Control of Beer Fermentation Process Using Differential Transform Method
In this paper, the mathematical model of batch fermentation process of ethanol was formulated. The method of differential transform was used to obtain the solution governing the fermentation process; the system of equation was transformed using the differential transform method. The result obtained from the model was observed to show that temperature plays an important role in the fermentation of ethanol, with an increase in temperature the production of ethanol tends to decreases while with a low temperature the production of ethanol increases.
