This CSTR model is commonly used in benchmark applications. It involves simple A->B kinetics, exhibits unstable behavior at higher temperatures, solves for temperature and concentration simultaneously, can maintain temperature control by adjusting jacket temperature, and has a few potential disturbance values such as feed concentration.
