Controller Design for Temperature Control of Heat Exchanger System: Simulation Studies

Miss. Mayuri H. More, Dr. M.G. Poddar


Heat exchanger system is mostly used in chemical plants due to its property to sustain temperature and pressure. The main aim of a heat exchanger system is to heat transfer from a hot fluid to a cooler fluid. In this Temperature control of heat exchanger system we design different controllers such as Feedback, Feed forward and Feedback plus Feed forward controllers. Analyzing the performance of those controllers and regulate the temperature of outlet fluid of a shell and tube heat exchanger to a certain reference value. The transient performances of these controllers are analyzed and the best controller is found out. From the simulation results, it is found out that the feedback plus feed-forward controller has a superior performance than feedback controller.
