The modelling, measurement, and control problems associated with continuous, well-mixed crystallizers are discussed in this paper. The crystallizer model consists of an integro-partial differential equation, the population balance, coupled with a set of ode's describing the overall reactor balances, such as solute concentration and temperature. Efficient methods for reducing this distributed model to a lumped model are formulated. A methodology for determining the stability of the population… CONTINUE READING
