A Two-Step Model Identification for Stirred Tank Reactors: Incremental and Integral Methods

Part of the SEMA SIMAI Springer Series book series (SEMA SIMAI, volume 13)


In this work we present a new methodology for solving an inverse identification problem with application in chemistry, using two approaches in cascade. More precisely, we are interested in the identification of kinetic models and their corresponding parameters in stirred tank reactors, using a set of experimental data and the reactions taking place. A catalogue of kinetic models containing the parameters to be identified will be provided too. In order to solve it, we use a combination of an incremental and an integral method.



Part of this research was developed as an activity in the Joint Research Unit Repsol-ITMATI (code file: IN853A 2014/03) which is funded by FEDER, the Galician Agency for Innovation (GAIN) and the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness in the framework of the Spanish Strategy for Innovation in Galicia.
