FPGA-Based Implementation of an Optimization Algorithm to Maximize the Productivity of a Microbial Electrolysis Cell


In this work, the design of the hardware architecture to implement an algorithm for optimizing the Hydrogen Productivity Rate (HPR) in a Microbial Electrolysis Cell (MEC) is presented. The HPR in the MEC is maximized by the golden section search algorithm in conjunction with a super-twisting controller. The development of the digital architecture in the implementation step of the optimization algorithm was developed in the Very High Description Language (VHDL) and synthesized in a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Numerical simulations demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed optimization strategy embedded in an FPGA Cyclone II. Results showed that only.
