The purpose of this work is to develop a reasonably detailed dynamic model of a Lurgi-type industrial methanol synthesis reactor so as to determine important simplifications, to identify application/operating model limits, and to preliminary check the feasibility for the Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) methodology. To do so, a Partially Differential Equation (PDE) system is formulated and integrated to characterize the main phenomena occurring in this shell and tube boiler-reactor. The PDE numerical solution is performed via certain very performing algorithms (BzzMath library).

Abstract

The purpose of this work is to develop a reasonably detailed dynamic model of a Lurgi-type industrial methanol synthesis reactor so as to determine important simplifications, to identify application/operating model limits, and to preliminary check the feasibility for the Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) methodology. To do so, a Partially Differential Equation (PDE) system is formulated and integrated to characterize the main phenomena occurring in this shell and tube boiler-reactor. The PDE numerical solution is performed via certain very performing algorithms (BzzMath library).
