Based on a bifurcation analysis of a process it is possible to point out where there might be operational problems due to change of stability of the process. One such change is investigated, Fold bifurcations. This type of bifurcation is associated with hysteresis/multiple steady states, which complicates operation close to these bifurcations. Typically only one of the steady states is interesting from a production point of view. A novel control law is proposed herein which is able to cope with the operational problems of the process.
