Incremental Model Identification in Distributed Two-phase Reaction Systems

Transformation to variant and invariant states, called extents, is used to decouple the dynamic effects of reaction systems and serves as basis for incremental model identification, in which kinetic models are identified individually for each dynamic effect. This contribution introduces a novel transformation to extents for the incremental model identification of two-phase distributed reaction systems. Distributed reaction systems are discussed for two cases, namely, when measurements along the spatial coordinate are available and when there are not. In the second case, several measurements made under appropriate operating conditions are combined to overcome the lack of measurements along the spatial coordinate. This novel method is illustrated via the simulated example of a two-phase tubular reactor.
