The dynamic behavior of a chemostat can be described with the following system of ordinary differential equations: , where is the dilution rate in , is the biomass concentration in g/l, is the substrate concentration in g/l, is the feed substrate concentration, is the yield, and is the specific growth rate (where is the half-saturation constant, is the inhibition constant, and is the maximum value of the specific growth rate, with here).
