Abstract

It is difficult to control the start-up of a packed-bed catalytic reactor with exothermic reaction by conventional controller. In this paper, a controller based on the fuzzy set theory is applied to such a system. The controller treats heuristic rules by fuzzy interpretation, and it is also equipped with adaptive scaling factors. The performance of the controller is experimentally examined with a reactor for the catalytic oxidation of hydrogen.
