Chemical Engineering Department University of Florida ECH 4323 Process Control Theory HOMEWORK No. 6 — TRANSFER FUNCTIONS 1.0 A constant-volume stirred-tank heater can be modeled as ( 29 ( 29 Q T T hA T T wC dt dT C V a i + - - - = r . Assume that w , T i , and T a (the ambient temperature) are constant. The area available for heat losses is A and an appropriate heat transfer coefficient is h . Obtain a transfer function that relates liquid outlet temperature T to Q , the heating rate of the element. 2.0 A process follows the differential equation model: x dt dx y dt dy dt y d dt y d 3 2 4 8 5 2 2 3 3 + = + + + . Find the transfer function relating Y(s) to X(s). Both y and x are deviation variables with zero initial values. 3.0 Exercise 4.5 4.0 A stirred tank reactor is operated with a feed mixture containing reactant A at a mass concentration c

Under certain conditions the system operates according to the model ( 29 A A Ai i A i Vkc wc c w dt Vc d w w dt V d r r r--=-= ) ( Derive transfer functions for the outlet concentration c A with respect to (a) c Ai , and (b) w i . Assume that w remains equal to w i for both parts (a) and (b). OPTIONAL: 5.0 Exercise 4.3 Note : Equation (2-45) is d( 29 = - Equation (2-46) is dT dt = - ( 29 + Eq. (2-46) has a typo in the textbook; use the equation given above instead. Hint : Applepolsher obtained the wrong answer because he did not notice that = (show that this indeed the mistake he made)....
