RUIZ, Ángela A  y  ALVAREZ, Hernán. Scaling of Chemical and Biochemical Processes based on a Phenomenological Model . Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.6, pp. 33-52. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642011000600005.

In this work a method for the scaling of chemical and biochemical processes based on a phenomenological model is presented. Concepts such as operating point and operating regime of a process are defined to propose a tool based on control theory to process scaling, the Hankel matrix. This methodology was applied to a fermenter for producing ethanol from glucose syrup. The values of the design parameters gave errors below 10% when they are compared with values reported in the literature, for both laboratory scaling and for an industrial scale.

Palabras clave : scaling; bioprocesses; phenomenological model; control theory; Hankel matrix.
