Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper


As an alternative or addition to complex physical modelling, in this paper transfer function models of the disinfection process in annular photoreactors under different flow conditions are derived. These transfer function models allow an analytical evaluation of the system dynamics and the control strategies to gain further insight while preserving the physical process parameters. For diffusive flow conditions a dead-time/Padé approximation is proposed to find a low-order linear system description. Given the (approximate) transfer functions with their physical process parameters, a model-based feed-forward control scheme is further worked out.
