A sliding mode control methodology using output information is demonstrated in application to the HDA-plant, a plant for production of benzene. This process is a highly integrated, non-linear large scale process with non-minimum phase and relative degree zero characteristics. The non-linear control law is designed on the basis of a linear observer-based control system. The non-linear control law uses the states of the linear observer. The performance in the sliding mode is determined by a linear stable sub-manifold of the linear closed loop control system chosen via a robust pole selection scheme. The sliding mode control is optimized to operate in a wide operating region.
