Large Decrease in Jacket Flowrate

Consider a step decrease of -1.0 (from 1.5 to 0.5 in jacket flowrate. The responses of the linear and nonlinear models are shown in Figure 4. Notice that gain of the linear model is now less than the gain of the nonlinear model. This is the opposite effect from what we observed for a large increase in the jacket flowrate.
