Module 5

Isothermal Chemical Reactor

Chemical reactors are often the most critical component in a chemical process system, taking raw materials and converting them into valuable products. Sometimes they can exhibit interesting steady-state and dynamic behavior that creates challenges for designing and operating control systems.

After studying this module the reader should br able to understand:

  • The nonlinear concept of input multiplicity

  • The challenge of inverse response behavior

  • The Ziegler-Nichols closed-loop oscillation tuning method

This module contains too many topics to cover interactively during a typical 2-hour session. It is recommended that the reader (or instructor) select a topic of particular interest. The two different controller ...
