This chapter presents a comprehensive analysis and modelling of the Tennessee Eastman challenge problem. Both a simplified model of the system as well as a full process model that includes the energy balances is given. In each case a full model analysis is carried out to establish the degrees of freedom (DoF) and the appropriate selection of variables to satisfy the DoF. Of major concern is the control of the process. The chapter considers the open-loop dynamics of the flowsheet as well as the closed loop responses. Plots show the reactor dynamic behaviour as well as stripper exit flowrates. All problem data are given and initial conditions for dynamic runs are stated to enable readers to replicate the model performance.
