Abstract

The paper presents a systematic investigation of PFR - Separator - Recycle systems where exothermic and endothermic reactions are simultaneously performed. The nonlinear behaviour is analyzed, for two flowsheet alternatives and four plantwide control structures. It is shown that complex and undesired nonlinear phenomena can be avoided by providing sufficient cooling capacity or by controlling the flow rate of each reactant at reactor inlet.
