AbstractWe propose nonlinear observers for a class of biotechnological processes. These observers are an extension of the open loop asymptotic observers (observers with unknown inputs) devoted to biotechnological systems for which some parts of the model are unknown. We take benefit of the additional outputs which are (nonlinear) functions of the state to design a closed loop observer. The global convergence of these nonlinear observers is proven. We use these observers to design interval based observers which predict guaranteed intervals in which the state is lying. We run simultaneously a broad set of interval observers and we select the best ones. The method is illustrated with a model describing the bioconversion of a substrate using micro-organisms in a bioreactor.
