The aim of this chapter is to optimise the productivity of an exothermic batch process, by maximising the production of the desired product while minimising the undesired by-product. During the process, heat is liberated when the reactants are mixed together. The exothermic behaviour causes the reaction to become unstable and consequently poses safety issues. In the industries, a dual-mode controller is used to control the process temperature according to a predetermined optimal reference… CONTINUE READING
