First, a set of experiments with 20-sim software package is designed; the final task is to achieve bond graph prototype simulators, which can be combined to obtain simulators for complex bioprocesses.
First, we provide a short introduction in the field of bioprocesses modeling via the bond graph approach.
In industry, the bioprocesses take place inside biological reactors (bioreactors) in which several biological reactions occur simultaneously in a liquid medium (Dochain, 2008; Petre, 2006).
However, if the launch of blockbuster biopharmaceutical drugs for hepatitis, cancer, diabetes, and hemophilia (and the subsequent revenue surge for pharmaceutical companies in 2003) is any indication, more industries are likely to step up the deployment of bioprocesses.
