This paper proposes optimization of uranium crystallization process to provide insight into the trade-offs between performance and robustness explicitly. Based on developed mathematical model, which describes the heat and mass transfer processes, behavioral analysis of using PID and MPC controllers was presented. Increasing of crystals outlet and simultaneous decreasing of uranyl nitrate concentration in the liquid outlet showed MPC advantages.
