Dynamics of a Heated Tank with Proportional/Integral (PI) Control – Programming Approach

Plan your solution: Draw a picture, in this case, list all of your data and equations Remember the fundamentals (material and energy balances, equations of state) and apply Draw your material or energy balance envelope (Proportional/Integral Contoller) Remember [Accumulation = In – Out + Source/Sink] Think about what you need to do and the answer […]

Dynamics of a Heated Tank with Proportional/Integral (PI) Control – Problem Description

Reference: This is problem 10 from an article  “A Collection of Representative Problems in Chemical Engineering for Solution by Numerical Methods”.  These problems came from Session 12 of the ASEE Chemical Engineering Summer School held in Snowbird, Utah in 1997.  In this problem, you will be modeling the temperature of a tank heated with a […]
