In this article several control schemes for a pilot scale polymerization reactor are proposed and one of them is selected as the most suitable design. The performances of proposed schemes have been compared through computer simulations. The controllers are PID and Chosen reaction is polymerization of methyl methacrylate which is highly exothermic.
