This paper presents a complete computer model for an industrial distillation column, which considers the input, output and model (nonlinearity and high-frequency dynamics of the process) uncertainties. The proposed model has a great advantage of covering the entire working range of the distillation column. This model can be used as a main tool for the analysis and synthesis of distillation process control systems.
