Abstract

In this paper, the optimization and low-level control design for Reactive Batch Distillation Columns (RBD) including startup operation are investigated. This is a complex problem involving control of heat and mass transfer phenomena over a wide operating window. A new model for the startup operation of an RBD column is proposed. Using this model, an offline optimization problem is solved to minimize the start-up time. Additionally, the classical low-level controllers for RBD columns are reformulated, and a new cascade control strategy with decouplers is proposed. This control structure allows reducing the strong interaction among the input-output variables of the RBD. Finally, the model, the optimal startup, and the proposed controllers are tested on simulation on a polyesterification process.
