The methods are proposed for studies on behaviour of periodically operated batch and semibatch reactors with the coupling between individual operating cycles and continuous reactors controlled by step changes of inlet quantities. The methods are based on numerical and graphical procedures. Examples are given on application of these methods to studies on the character and stability of steady cycles of the batch reactor with the closed bath of the coolant (heat carrier) at exothermic first order reaction. The reactor together with the bath of the coolant is operated autothermally.
