The paper deals with continuous-time nonlinear adaptive control of a continuous stirred tank reactor. The control strategy is based on an application of the controller consisting of a linear and nonlinear part. The static nonlinear part is derived in the way of a inversion and consecutive polynomial approximation of a measured or simulated input-output data. The design of the dynamic linear part is based on approximation of nonlinear elements in the control loop by a continuous-time external linear model with parameters estimated using a corresponding delta model. In the control design procedure, the polynomial approach with the pole assignment method is used. The nonlinear adaptive control is tested by simulations on the nonlinear model of the CSTR with a consecutive exothermic reaction.
