A dynamic model for state profiles of a plug flow reactor is developed, including multiple fluid and solid phases. The model is based on onservation of reactor state profile moments along the spatial dimension of the reactor. These moments are transformed analytically into a olynomial approximation at each time step. The method is flexible, and low as well as high order numerical schemes are resulted in by appropriate hoice of parameters. A significant advantage of the present method is that… CONTINUE READING
