In this investigation recently developed InterCriteria Analysis (ICA) is applied aiming at examination of the influence of a genetic algorithm (GA) parameter in the procedure of a parameter identification of a fermentation process model. Proven as the most sensitive GA parameter, generation gap is in the focus of this investigation. The apparatuses of index matrices and intuitionistic fuzzy sets, laid in the ICA core, are implemented to establish the relations between investigated here generation gap, from one side, and model parameters of fed-batch fermentation process of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, from the other side. The obtained results after ICA application are analysed towards convergence time and model accuracy and some conclusions about observed interactions are derived.
