Abstract

Continuous Stirred Tank Reactors (CSTR) are one of the main technological plants used in chemical and biochemical industry. These systems are quite complex with many nonlinearities and the conventional linear control with fixed parameters can be questionable or sometimes unacceptable. The solution should be found in so-called “non-traditional” control approaches like adaptive, robust, fuzzy, or artificial intelligent methods. One way is the utilization of self-tuning adaptive schemes, but computations may be quite difficult, clumsy and time-consuming. This paper brings an alternative principle called a robust approach and the comparison of the robust and adaptive control responses. Robust control considers a CSTR model as a linear system with parametric uncertainty, which covers a family of all feasible plants. Then several controllers with fix parameters are designed so that for all possible plants, the acceptable control behavior is obtained. The two-degree-of-freedom (2DOF) structure for the control law was chosen. Both robust and adaptive control is applied to an original nonlinear model of a CSTR. All calculations and simulations of mathematical models and control responses were performed in the Matlab and Simulink environment.
