This is a nonlinear system of differential and algebriac equations, that describe the dynamics of a continuous bioreactor. The bioreactor simulates the production of ethanol through yeast fermentation. The model is described in:

Additional nonlinear, first principles models can be found at:

Special thanks to Zoltan Nagy for his submission to this collection of models.
