simulation calculates steady-state values of state variables in
a glucose limited chemostat with S.
The results are plotted against the dilution rate (D).
D approaches 0.3 h-1
glucose uptake rate exceeds a critical value above which
additional glucose uptake is metabolized only fermentatively.
This is visualized by the maximum in qO and onset of ethanol
