The problem of estimating the model parameters for predicting a quality indicator for an output product of a reactive distillation process is considered. The feedback loop in the prediction error of the output variable is used in the mathematical model. It is shown that this approach increases the accuracy of identifying a plant. The predictive model obtained is intended for being used as part of the improved system of the control of the technological process.
