|[en] There is a lack of simple online monitoring system to control the performances of biogas reactors. The electronic nose technology appears to be an adapted device to deliver fast information about process disturbances in anaerobic reactors as it is adequate for online monitoring. In this study, twelve anaerobic mini-reactors were supervised with a home-made e-nose to observe process reaction in relation to organic overloads events. Usually, to avoid overload situations, on farms reactors are not fed at maximum load capacity, resulting in non optimized biogas production. The objective of the experiment was to determine if the gas sensors array feature can be related to the process state and if an indirect state variable, giving early warning of process faults, can be derived from the e-nose response.
<br />The results demonstrated that focusing on gas phase of anaerobic reactors with a simple device composed of an array of non-specific gas sensors helped in the warning of disorders of the anaerobic digestion process. Mahalanobis distance from a cautious feeding group (group of observations indicating a good process) can be used as an indirect variable to evaluate the intensity of the state disorder. Euclidean distance has been also calculated but it was less informative than the Mahalanobis distance.
