About this book

Sewerage and wastewater treatment will become, argue the editors of this text, ever more dependent in the future on online information from sensors. With such reliable continuous online information, the potential for improved performance is vast. For this to happen, however, our understanding for the process dynamics must be improved, the hardware and software used in the sensors and subsequent processing must be both reliable and able to handle quantities of data orders of magnitude greater than previously experienced. The papers selected for these proceedings record many of the developments that are leading the way in this field: new sensors and analyzers for online control; "software sensors" based on application of new processing techniques to current equipment; practical application of commercially available sensors; real-time control strategies; and respirometry-based control for activated sludge processes.


Development and Application of New Sensors and Analysers for On-Line Control . Description and test of a new generation of nutrient sensors (A. Lynggaard-Jensen et al). A sensor for the secondary clarifier based on image analysis (K. Grijspeerdt, W. Verstraete). Development of "Software Sensors" Based on Signal Processing/Filtering Techniques Applied to Existing Hardware . Estimation of wastewater process parameters using neural networks (M. Hack, M. Kohne). Software sensors based on the grey-box modelling approach (J. Carstensen et al). Practical Experience with the Application of Commercially Available Sensors/Analysers . Six years of practical experience with the operation of on-line analysers (J. Londong, P Wachtl). Experiences with automatic N and P measurements of an activated sludge process in a research environment (S. Isaacs, H. Temmink). Optimization of nutrient removal with on-line monitoring and dynamic simulation (E.J. Leeuw et al). Real-Time Control Strategies for Sewer Systems and Wastewater Treatment Plants . Advanced computer control based on real and software sensors (T.B. Onnerth et al). Real-time control of nitrogen removal using three ORP binding-points; signification, control strategy and results (S. Plisson-Saune et al). Respirometry Based Control of Activated Sludge Processes . Estimation of the respiration rate and oxygen transfer function utilizing a slow DO sensor (C.-F. Lindberg, B. Carlsson).
