Adaptive control, tubular chemical reactor, dynamic analysis, steady-state


This paper deals with adaptive control of the nonlinear distributed-parameters system – the tubular chemical reactor. Computer simulation is one tool which can help us with examination of the behaviour of the system. This behaviour is cornerstone to the controller design. Used adaptive approach is based on recursive identification of the system’s parameters during the control. A polynomial approach used for the controller synthesis has satisfied control requirements and moreover, it could be used for systems with negative properties such as nonlinearity, non-minimum phase etc.
