This paper outlines an automated pectinase production system suitable for integration into the dairy industry. A yeast fermentation with three commercial products is used as a model system at laboratory scale, with considerable potential for large-scale implementation. A two-tier hierarchical control system is used to maintain system stability with a feedback loop, and optimize productivity with a feedforward loop based on off-line measurements. This approach overcomes the very non-linear system dynamics and can accommodate probable variations in the feed stream.
