Abstract: We present a general control and optimization strategy based on time-step state space volume preservation. This is performed by maintaining the divergence of the system close to zero. The on-line implementation is shown for batch chemical reactors. The divergence of these systems is reconstructed on-line using only reactor temperature measurements by applying state space reconstruction techniques. The simulated results are compared with a traditional control scheme. This kind of control allows to operate in safety conditions and to optimize the performance of the process by accelerating the slow reactions and reducing batch times.
