The linear-quadratic (LQ) optimal temperature and reactant concentration regulation problem is studied for a partial differential equation model of a nonisothermal plug flow tubular reactor by using a nonlinear infinite dimensional Hilbert state space description. First the dynamical properties of the linearized model around a constant temperature equilibrium profile along the reactor are studied: it is shown that it is exponentially stable and (approximately) reachable. Next the general… CONTINUE READING
