Due to multi input multi output variables affected the continuous stirred tank reactor its worthy to use the state space model to study the dynamics of this system. In this work, a saponifecation process was studded on which Ethel acetate was reacted with sodium hydroxide to produced sodium acetate and ethanol. one litter operation volume CSTR was used, the flow rate of Ethel acetate and cooling water were toke as disturbance variables and the concentration of sodium acetate and the temperature of reactor as response variables. The results show improvement compared with linearized model.
