Based upon the general characteristics of the optimal feed rate profiles presented in an earlier article, efficient computational algorithms have been developed for fed-batch fermentation processes described by four or less mass balance equations. These algorithms make computations of optimal substrate feed rate profiles straight forward and simple for various fed-batch cultures for such products as antibiotics, amino acids, enzymes, alcohols, and cell mass. Numerical examples of penicillin fermentation and bacterial cell mass production are given in detail, illustrating the use of these algorithms.
