Abstract : In this paper, we propose a simple operational criterion for raceway systems that when integrated in a strategy of closed-loop control allows to attain microalgal productivities very near to the maximal productivities. The strategy developed was tested numerically by using a mathematical model of microalgae growth in raceways. The model takes into account the dynamics of environmental variables such temperature and light intensity and their influence on microalgae growth.
