A nonlinear model predictive control (NMPC) is applied to a slurry polymerization stirred tank reactor for the production of high-density polyethylene. Its performance is examined to reach the required mean molecular weight and comonomer composition, together with the temperature setpoint. A complete phenomenological model including the microscale, the… CONTINUE READING
