Abstract : In this work, we study the question of selecting in minimal-time a microalgae species of interest using the Droop model to describe the dynamics of two distinct populations competing for a limiting nutrient. This amounts to consider an optimal control problem governed by a five-dimensional affine control system in which the control is the dilution rate. Throughout this paper, the optimal control strategies allowing the strain of interest to dominate the population in minimal-time is discussed. These results are illustrated using a numerical direct optimization method (implemented in Bocop).
