Microbial fuel cell (MFC) is a novel bio-renewable energy source, whose maximum produced power is, like most other renewable energy sources (photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, etc.) highly dependent on external disturbances. Hence, an appropriate real-time optimization method should be used so that the MFC always operates at its optimum. Extremum-seeking control (ESC) can be applied to optimize this type of system. However, when the optimal operating point of the MFC varies very fast due to… CONTINUE READING
