Temperature program optimization in a nonisothermal experiment

  • V. A. Bir
  • Ya. A. Belikhmaer


The optimum temperature program has been determined for a system of independent first-order reactions, which is best in the sense of an identifiability decomposition criterion. Analytic expressions are derived for the optimum programs for the case of two reactions. A computer algorithm is described for the case of any number of reactions. It is suggested that one should use programs combining linear heating with isothermal operation.
