Temperature Control Of Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor Using Model Predictive Controller
The objective of this paper is to develop a Model Predictive Control (MPC) to control the temperature in
Continuous Stirred Tank reactor (CSTR), which exhibits highly nonlinear dynamics. PID controllers are widely used in
industry, however the control of nonlinear system using PID control scheme doesn’t give satisfactory performance at all
operating points, the reason behind is that the parameters of these nonlinear process varies with the operating conditions .
Here, a model based predictive controller is designed and implemented for the temperature control of the process reactor of
Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR). PID controller is also designed. The PID Controller and MPC controller both are
tuned and simulated using MATLAB. The transients results are compared in both PID and MPC controller and analysis is
