Self-Adaptive Generalized Predictive Control of Batch Reactor

Adaptive control, predictive control, batch reactor.


In this paper a self-adaptive generalized predictive control algorithm was tested to control the temperature in the batch reactor’s core. The batch reactor is used in pharmaceutical industry in the production of antibiotics. The batch reactor is an example of hybrid process where some discrete on/off valves and a continuous mixing valve are used. The con tinuous control with some decision logic is used to control the hybrid type of process. The simulation study was done to elaborate the possible use of the proposed self-adaptive control algorithm in the real application.
