Output of Monte-Carlo-sampled simulations. a, d Impact of incident light intensity, maximum photosynthetic rate of nitrogen replete cells (q max, repleteph ) and residual biomass made during nitrogen starvation (X cho) on batch and repeated-batch, respectively. g Impact of incident light intensity, cycle duration (Δ), culture fraction remaining after harvest (f) and amount of nitrogen resupplied in the medium (N) on repeated-batch. To illustrate the individual contribution of q max, repleteph (be), X cho (cf), Δ (H), f (I) and N (L) independently from the influence of light, the TAG yield is normalized to the yield (red symbols) predicted at the same incident light intensity and with the value of the parameter under study as presented in Additional file 1: Table S1 (batch) and Table S2 (repeated-batch)
