Application of the Hammerstein Block-oriented Exact Solution Technique (H-BEST) to a real industrial process is presented. The methodology is extended to processes with a Wiener structure, and named the Wiener block-Oriented Exact Solution Technique (W-BEST). The W-BEST methodology is presented in detail and applied to a simulated continuous-stirred tank reactor with complex dynamic behavior. W-BEST is then compared to another continuous-time Wiener-based model found in the literature and applied to an example process. The results of the two methods are compared using a test input sequence applied to the example process.
