Strong Stability of a Nonlinear Multi-Stage Dynamic System in Batch Culture of Glycerol Bioconversion to 1,3-Propanediol
In this paper, we consider a nonlinear multi-stage dynamic system to characterize batch culture. We construct corresponding linear variational system for the solution to the multi-stage system, also prove the boundedness of fundamental matrix solutions for the linear variational system. On this basis, we prove strong stability with respect to perturbance of initial state vector for the multi-stage system through the application of such boundedness. From extensive simulation study, it is observed that the strong stability is highly satisfactory.
