Extension of the IWA/COST simulation benchmark to include expert reasoning for system performance evaluation

Comas, J; Rodriguez-Roda, I; Poch, M; Gernaey, KV; Rosén, Christian LU and Jeppsson, Ulf LU (2006) 2nd IWA Conference on Instrumentation, Control and Automation (ICA2005) In Water Science and Technology 53(4-5). p.331-339
Abstract
In this paper the development of an extension module to the IWA/COST simulation benchmark to include expert reasoning is presented. This module enables the detection of suitable conditions for the development of settling problems of biological origin (filamentous bulking, foaming and rising sludge) when applying activated sludge control strategies to the simulation benchmark. Firstly, a flow diagram is proposed for each settling problem, and secondly, the outcome of its application is shown. Results of the benchmark for two evaluated control strategies illustrate that, once applied to the simulation outputs, this module provides supplementary criteria for plant performance assessment. Therefore, simulated control strategies can be... (More)

Results of the benchmark for two evaluated control strategies illustrate that, once applied to the simulation outputs, this module provides supplementary criteria for plant performance assessment. Therefore, simulated control strategies can be evaluated in a more realistic framework, and results can be recognised as more realistic and satisfactory from the point of view of operators and real facilities.
