Cellular Non-linear Network model of a Microbial Fuel Cell >

Cellular Non-linear Network model of a Microbial Fuel Cell. Each node of the network takes a vector of states which represent geometrical characteristics of the cell, like the electrodes or impermeable borders, and quantify measurable properties like bacterial population, charges produced and hydrogen ion concentrations. The model allows the study of integral reaction of the … Continue reading “Cellular Non-linear Network model of a Microbial Fuel Cell”
