Abstract

This work is focused on the development of mathematical model that can monitor, predict and simulate the relationship between distillate and reflux ratio using impulse application of response. The response application used was, impulse in conjunction with development of model on the interior tray, reflux drum and reboiler component. The general equation developed in the interior tray, reflux drum and reboiler component was correlated with the impulse response to evaluate the distillate and reflux ratio control action. The system was tested by applying impulse parameters and the result obtained indicates the behavior as presented in this research work. The control response is useful in monitoring the distillate and reflux ratio in a distillation column.
