Reaction calorimetry is a powerful technique for process monitoring as it allows the estimation of the heat of reaction Q̇R, which can be used to determine conversion. In addition, under some circumstances, the overall heat transfer coefficient k, which is useful for maximizing production and for safety analysis, can be estimated. Currently, there is no(More)
In this contribution a hierarchical approach to the control of the molecular weight in a semi-batch emulsion polymerization is derived, which ensures minimum batch time. Rather than performing a numerical optimization to determine an optimal trajectory for the process at any point in time, the existing boundary conditions are examined and used to determine(More)
