School of Chemical Engineering CEIC3000 Process Modelling and Analysis Tutorial 2 1. Consider a perfectly mixed stirred-tank heater, with a single feed stream and a single product stream, as shown in Figure 1. Assume that the flowrate ( F i ) and temperature of the inlet stream ( T i ) can vary, the tank is perfectly insulated, and the rate of heat added per unit time ( Q ) can vary. Develop a model from which you can find how would F i , T i and Q affect the tank temperature as a function of time. State your assumptions . Figure 1: Stirred tank heater 2. Consider the following set of series and parallel reactions A k 1 B k 2 C (1) A + A k 3 D (2) Material balances on components A and B yield the following two equations

(a) Assume the steady-state value of c A is c As = 3 mol liter . Find the steady-state dilution rate ( F/V ) and concentration of B (show all units). 1 (b) Linearize the model given in Equations (3) and (4) and put in the state-space form: x = Ax + Bu (5) y = Cx , (6) (i.e., to nd the numerical values of the A , B and C matrices), assuming that the input variable is dilution rate ( F/V ), and the output variable is c B . 2...
