Figure 5 Comparison between actual and predicted ∆P across first reformer reactor

nificance and ability of explaining first reformer reactor ∆P behaviour. Lastly, Figure 4 shows a comparison between the actual and predicted ∆P across the first reformer reactor. The prediction overview was found to be satisfactory. The change in behaviour or the errors observed at some period can be attributed to the dynamic changes in the six explana - tory variables that affect the output in the regression equation and influ - ence the catalyst attrition. This, in turn, leads to increased ∆P. Lastly, the end period prediction errors can

be attributed to the physical damage of the catalyst, which is difficult to draw in the prediction. Acknowledgment The author would like to express special thanks of gratitude to Dr. Tony K.
