Abstract
Abstract Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with various light wavelengths (red, yellow, green, blue and white) and various levels of light intensity (750, 1500 and 3000 μmol m −2  s −1 ) are applied to study the effects of light sources on chlorophyll a (Chl) and phycocyanin (Phy) production of Spirulina platensis . Logistic rate equations are used to depict the kinetic behavior of algal growth and pigments formation under various light sources and intensities. According to the regression results, a red LED is the best for algae growth. On the other hand, yellow light gives the best specific Chl production rate with a light intensity of 750 or 1500 μmol m −2  s −1 , and blue light yields the best specific pigments (for Chl and Phy) production rates at 3000 μmol m −2  s −1 . From the model fitting results, it is found that, at a higher light intensity, a higher specific Chl production rate accompanied by a higher S. platensis biomass is obtained. However, as for Phy production, a higher biomass results in a lower specific Phy production rate. The only exception is the use of blue light, which shows a positive effect on both Chl and Phy production rates under a higher light intensity.
