Batch Process Modeling and Control: Background
Batch processes are an indispensable constituent of chemical process industries and are universally used for manufacturing of high-quality products. The preeminent reason for their popularity can be attributed to their flexibility to control different grades of products by changing the initial conditions and input trajectories. However, a batch process is characterized by absence of operation around equilibrium conditions resulting in highly nonlinear dynamics, which make the classical approaches (for continuous processes) not directly applicable. The present chapter details the existing approaches for modeling and control as they pertain to batch processes.
