In this paper the application of InterCriteria Analysis (ICA) is presented. The approach is based on the apparatuses of index matrices and intuitionistic fuzzy sets. ICA is applied to establish the relations and dependencies of defined parameters in non-linear models of Escherichia coli MC4110 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentation processes. Parameter identification of both fed-batch process models has been done using three kinds of genetic algorithms (GA) – standard single population GA (SGA) and two SGA modifications. The obtained results are discussed in the lights of ICA and some conclusions about existing relations and dependencies between model parameters are derived.
