Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Biochemical ProcessesAuthor(s): M. Manimozhi
Biochemical processes are gaining industrial importance because of their inherent advantages like mild operating conditions and versatility of the processes which mean lower operating costs in terms of lesser energy requirements and a number of industrially important products that could be made from a general process setup. These features have made the biochemical processes the target of intense research in pharmaceutical, fine chemical and bioactive component fields. The literature is rich with information on the fault detection and diagnosis (FDD) techniques for conventional chemical processing plants. This article reviews the applicability of FDD techniques to biochemical processes.
