Abstract

The design of a robust nonlinear feedback controller is analyzed for temperature control of continuous stirred tank reactors (CSTRs) which have strong nonlinearities and steady-state multiplicities. The present method treats the original nonlinear system as it is without transforming into an equivalent linear system. The controller is robust to modelling errors and random disturbances occurring in the system. The controller design is also analyzed for situation when the kinetics, activation energy and heat of reaction are unknown and also only limited state-variables measurements are available.
