Two Control strategies are developed to control the molecular weight in emulsion polymerization by manipulating flow-rates of water stream of jacket in first case study and the power of heater in another study. The control strategies were validated with experimental data of emulsion polymerization using Methyl methacrylate as monomer. PID controller is used to control the temperature of the reactor in both the case studies.
