Abstract: 
The role and importance of the
simulation rises with the increasing speed of computers and simulation tools
provided nowadays. Safety and less money and time demands gives
a computer simulation big advantage over the experiments on a real system or
its model. The paper deals with simulation of an adaptive control on a
nonlinear system represented by a Continuous Stirred Tank Reactor (CSTR).
This system is mathematically described by a set of Ordinary Differential
Equations (ODE) which are first solved numerically
to obtain steadystate and dynamic behaviour of the
system. The adaptive control is based on the recursive identification of an
External Linear Model (ELM) as a representation of the originally nonlinear
system. The polynomial approach together with the poleplacement method gives
sufficient control results although the system has negative control
properties.
