- Abstract
- In this report, the dynamics of an aertor of an activated sludge process is studied. Two control strategies for the dissolved oxygen concentration are tested. One contains either a PI-controller or an on-off controller, the other a self-tuning controller. <br><br> There are two key-parameters in the system, KLa, the total oxygen transfer rate, and OUR, the oxygen uptake rate of the microorganisms in the aerator. The parameters are difficult to obtain from direct measurements. An estimator is derived. The estimates will be calculated from the process output, DO-concentration, and from the input signal, the air-flow rate. <br><br>The estimator is also part of a self-tuning controller. Here, the controller works with a minimem variance... (More)

To obtain unbiased estimates of the two parameters is important in other aerator control schemes. Therefore different approaches have to be taken. <br><br> The simulations show that an acceptable control can be obtained both with a PI-controller and with a self-tuning controller. (Less)
