The development and evaluation of the dynamic flowsheet for isobutene dimerization process is presented. The steps for developing the dynamic model, the control scheme and the controllers tuning are shown and the response of the system to different disturbances is evaluated. The results are presented in graphical form. Methods for changing the plant throughput and for controlling the product specification when the feed composition varies are presented.
