Temperature control is very vital for processes that induce very high temperatures.
Thus the need for tight control to prevent undesired production, or reactor burst.
Process control is somehow shared between the fields of chemical engineering
(more focus to process), and control engineering (more focus to control), and a mid
point is to be reached by both sides to achieve the plant and production
requirements, and also to maintain the system stable. Two control schemes are to be
explored, PID control and neuro-control. The first one is widely used in all of
industry sectors, especially process control. The later one is still a field of discovery
and exploration, as all focus is there now to make intelligent systems the new
substitutes for the conventional control systems. The system under the study is the
non-isothermal CSTR with irreversible reaction A~B. The control scheme using the
coolant flow showed that it is more efficient in heat removal and maintaining the
system stable and under control, at the same time achieving the economic goal of
highest productivity. Another scheme to be in touch is the hybrid control, where by
different schemes are combined to compensate for each other, reaching an optimal
control structure. For Further improvement to the system design, more disturbances
to be included, and more complex processing units are to be tested using the
controller schemes proposed. Experimental work is also an advantage to verilY the
simulations of the system and the controllers.
