Particulate techniques are characterised by way of the co-presence of a contin uous part and a dispersed (particulate) section, and are popular in for the producing of many high-value items. Examples comprise the crystallization of proteins for pharmaceutical functions, the emulsion polymerization reactors for the construction of latex, the aerosol synthesis of titania powder utilized in the construction of white pig ments, and the thermal spray processing of nanostructured coatings. it really is now good understood that the physico-chemical and mechanical homes of fabrics made with particulates count seriously at the features of the corresponding particle dimension distribution. This truth, including fresh advances in dynamics of infinite-dimensional sys tems and nonlinear keep watch over thought, has inspired huge examine on model-based keep watch over of particulate approaches utilizing inhabitants balances to accomplish tight keep an eye on of particle dimension distributions. This e-book - the 1st of its style - offers common equipment for the synthesis of nonlinear, strong and limited suggestions controllers for large sessions of particulate technique versions and illustrates their applica tions to industrially-important crystallization, aerosol and thermal spray procedures. The controllers use a finite variety of dimension sensors and regulate actuators to accomplish stabilization of the closed-loop approach, output monitoring, attenuation of the impression of version uncertainty and han dling of actuator saturation.
