I am a software engineer for some of leading companies that specialist in building controller software and Application, I am going to build new software, that needs engineering skills beside to the software and coding skills. Everything going well with me, I started reading some of Plantwide Control pdfs and take a look into some of the related algorithms and diagrams.
can you provide me with the solutions and answers for the exercises in each Appendix?
Ex: Appendix F
feedforward control based on measurements of z0
the set point of the reactor ef?uent ?ow controller, can be
used to approximate F. The set point for the reactor level
controller would then be
In the following steps, you are to evaluate Luyben’s proposed
alternative. If necessary, detune any of the controllers to
keep oscillations to a minimum.
(a) Determine how Luyben’s proposed alternative structure
responds to a step change in z0
(b) Implement Luyben’s proposed feedforward controller—
that is the equation above—and implement a similar step
change in z0
(c) What can you say about the speed of response of this
controlled plant with and without the feedforward controller?
(d) What are the advantages and disadvantages of Luyben’s
F.6 Implement Alternatives 3 and 4 using the Simulink
model. This will require tuning a cascade loop to control composition in each case.
HR, sp(t) =
(a) Evaluate the response of these controlled plants for a
step change in F0 without using the ratio controller proposed
by Wu and Yu.
(b) Repeat (a) with a controller used to ratio the column
feed ?ow rate to the reactor feed ?ow rate. How do the responses in (a) and (b) compare?
F.7 Evaluate any two of the four alternatives we have looked
at in this chapter, (i.e., Exercises F.3, F.4a, and/or F.6).
(a) Compare the responses of each control structure to
step changes in reactor feed ?ow rate.
(b) Compare the sensitivities of each alternative to changes
in this variable.
F.8 The recycle plant discussed in this chapter utilizes a
composition-only model; that is, thermal effects are
neglected. Appendix H contains equations and parameters that can be used to model temperature effects in the
reactor. Implement the cooling coil equations for the reactor
and, using the cooling water ?ow rate as manipulated variable,
design a PI controller that will control reactor temperature.
Test your plant’s response to a step change in reactor feed
?ow rate using any of the control structure alternatives discussed in this chapter. What can you conclude regarding the
effect of a well-tuned controller for reactor temperature on
the responses of the other system variables such as F and D?

This sounds like a homework question for a course. In general this newsgroup
requires people posting homework questions (or questions that SOUND LIKE
they're homework, even if they're not) to show what they've done to try to
solve the problem and to ask a SPECIFIC question before the readers will
offer any suggestions. Post the code you've written to try to solve these
exercises and indicate where EXACTLY you're stuck and someone may offer some
I will give you a very general suggestion: I would consider using ODE45 in
MATLAB or creating a Simulink model of the system to solve these problems.
FYI, this was also asked on MATLAB Answers:

No tags are associated with this thread.
A tag is like a keyword or category label associated with each thread. Tags make it easier for you to find threads of interest.
Anyone can tag a thread. Tags are public and visible to everyone.
The newsgroups are a worldwide forum that is open to everyone. Newsgroups are used to discuss a huge range of topics, make announcements, and trade files.
Discussions are threaded, or grouped in a way that allows you to read a posted message and all of its replies in chronological order. This makes it easy to follow the thread of the conversation, and to see what’s already been said before you post your own reply or make a new posting.
Newsgroup content is distributed by servers hosted by various organizations on the Internet. Messages are exchanged and managed using open-standard protocols. No single entity “owns” the newsgroups.
There are thousands of newsgroups, each addressing a single topic or area of interest. The MATLAB Central Newsreader posts and displays messages in the comp.soft-sys.matlab newsgroup.
You can use the integrated newsreader at the MATLAB Central website to read and post messages in this newsgroup. MATLAB Central is hosted by MathWorks.
Messages posted through the MATLAB Central Newsreader are seen by everyone using the newsgroups, regardless of how they access the newsgroups. There are several advantages to using MATLAB Central.
Your MATLAB Central account is tied to your MathWorks Account for easy access.
Use the Email Address of Your Choice
The MATLAB Central Newsreader allows you to define an alternative email address as your posting address, avoiding clutter in your primary mailbox and reducing spam.
Most newsgroup spam is filtered out by the MATLAB Central Newsreader.
Messages can be tagged with a relevant label by any signed-in user. Tags can be used as keywords to find particular files of interest, or as a way to categorize your bookmarked postings. You may choose to allow others to view your tags, and you can view or search others’ tags as well as those of the community at large. Tagging provides a way to see both the big trends and the smaller, more obscure ideas and applications.
Setting up watch lists allows you to be notified of updates made to postings selected by author, thread, or any search variable. Your watch list notifications can be sent by email (daily digest or immediate), displayed in My Newsreader, or sent via RSS feed.
