The adaptive output feedback control problem of chemical distributed parameter systems is investigated while the process parameters are unknown. Such systems can be usually modeled by semi-linear partial differential equations (PDEs). A combination of Galerkin's method and proper orthogonal decomposition is applied to generate a reduced order model which captures the dominant dynamic behavior of the system and can be used as the basis for Lyapunov-based adaptive controller design. The proposed control method is illustrated on thermal dynamics regulation in a tubular chemical reactor where the temperature spatiotemporal dynamic behavior is modeled in the form of a semi-linear PDE.
