Nonlinear Controller Design For A Shell And Tube Heat Exchanger – An Experimentation Approach
In this paper the outlet water temperature control of the shell and tube heat exchanger was implemented in real
time system with the Generic Model Control (GMC) and adaptive control technique in simulation. The steady state model of
the heat exchanger is used for the GMC and the dynamic model of the shell and tube heat exchanger is used for the adaptive
control technique. MATLAB-2010-Simulink was used as a tool to implement the control algorithm in hardware loop.
