The process to be controlled is a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) shown in the following figure. A nonisothermal irreversible chemical reaction takes place in the CSTR: A→B.
The SIMULINK model of this process is available for download from the course Blackboard Assignment page.
Design an IMC controller that will manipulate coolant temperature to control the residual concentration. The control system must be able to track setpoint changes in the residual concentration and reject disturbance in the feed temperature.
