|Title:||Computational Study of the Optimization of a Catalytic Reactor for a Reversible Reaction with Catalyst Decay|
|Keywords:||optimal, policy, decay, catalytic, reactor, reversible|
|Abstract:||<p> The optimal temperature policy with time is sought which maximizes the total amount of reaction in a fixed time in a tubular reactor with uniform temperature and decaying catalyst for a single reversible reaction.</p> <p> A numerical procedure together with theoretical developments is used to solve this problem for two kinetic models. The problem is treated in the format of Pontryagin's Maximum Principle.</p> <p> Computer listings are given in the Appendix for the following cases A) Optimal policy for irreversible reactions 8) Optimal policy for isothermal irreversible reactions C) Optimal policy for reversible reactions.</p>|
