In this chapter an exact input-output linearization control technique is developed for a DC MFC. The nonlinear mathematical model of the two compartments is discussed in Chap 2. Exact linearization control is proposed considering dilution rate as the isnput variable. Control effectiveness is ascertained through simulation work.
