The dynamic operation of an ideal continuous-flow stirred tank slurry reactor for propylene polymerization has been studied. A simple model is developed, which could be used for optimal computer control using advanced strategies.Step increases in input feed rates of propylene, solvent, and catalyst are used as the stimuli or forcing functions. It is assumed that the volume of the slurry in the reactor is maintained constant during the period. Responses of three output variables are studied, namely, monomer co…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
