Abstract. In this paper, we estimate the stability of continuoustype automated industrial processes and choose a sufficient timesampling frequency of the control signal using Whitney’s singularity theory. The proposed stability analysis approach is based on constructing typical bifurcations for the historical data of a technological object under different timesampling frequencies of its control signal. The singularity equation serves for obtaining the equation of the equilibrium state curves of the system and a sufficient timesampling frequency of the control signal corresponding to the vertex of the resulting curve. As an illustrative example, the developed method is applied to the control system of the mass balance stripping section in the purification process of a styrene distillation column of the ethylbenzene, styrene, and polystyrene plants. Based on the quantitative analysis results, we construct a bifurcation and determine a sufficient timesampling frequency of the control signal to ensure system stability.
Keywords: catastrophe theory, bifurcation, dynamical systems, stability criteria.
