Title: Robust controller design for temperature tracking problems in jacketed batch reactors
Author: Sampath, Vishak; Palanki, Srinivas; Cockburn, Juan; Corriou, Jean-Pierre
Abstract: There is an increasing trend to employ advanced instrumentation and control strategies for batch processes where expensive products are being manufactured. In this paper, a robust nonlinear control strategy is developed for temperature tracking problems in batch reactors in the presence of parametric uncertainty. The controller has a multi-loop feedback configuration. An inner loop is designed for approximate input-output linearization of a nominal plant. The outer loop is designed for stability and robust performance by utilizing results from structured singular values ([mew]-synthesis). It is shown via simulation of a temperature tracking problem in batch synthesis that the controller provides excellent tracking despite parametric uncertainty.
