A MODEL BASED HYBRID NUMERICAL CONTROL ALGORITHM FOR THE CONTINUOUS DRYING OF A THICK WEB IN AN INFRARED DRYER

Normand Thérien, Arthur Broadbent, Sergio Pérez

Abstract

Experimental results from the transient drying of sheets of polyester in an infrared (IR) dryer were used to derive a performance model. Separate drying experiments were done using sheets of material of various densities and thicknesses. The formulations expressed the core temperature of the web to the surface temperature of the web as a function of the residency time in the dryer and the electric power used. Also, a relationship between the time duration required to achieve a given core temperature of the web as a function of the electric power was derived. These relationships were used to derive an hybrid numerical control algorithm using feed forward and feedback actions to control the core humidity of the web at the outlet of the dryer.
