Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new periodic operation is investigated for heterogeneous catalytic CSTR. For the heterogeneous case two scales of dynamic responses have been derived, slow for heat processes and fast for concentration processes. Periodic operation in intermediate mode between slow and fast processes, called mediate operation is studied by manipulation of feed flow rate. Mediate operation enables a desired separation of temperature and concentration responses by a single input variable. The stabilization of conversion improvement can be achieved for lower and upper stable steady states. For system analysis analytical investigation of the slow manifolds is used as well as numerical study.
