Abstract A method of adapting a kinetic model based on steady-state chemostat data to predict the transient performance of a chemostat culture is presented. The proposal provides for a time delay which can be considered equivalent to a period of reduced activity of the organism subsequent to the introduction of a step change in operating conditions. The adapted kinetic model gives substantially better performance in predicting the transient response of an experimental system than the unmodified kinetic model.
