The method of numerical simulation of a catalytic system dynamics with lumped parameters is reported. Appropriate balance equations have been derived and suitable calculation procedures are discussed. Numerical example of simulation of the catalytic methanol dehydration dynamics is presented and calculated relaxation curves are compared with experimental data obtained earlier.
