Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper reports on a new approach in modelling and controlling an alternating aerobic-anoxic wastewater treatment plant. The plant is controlled using a model predictive approach adapted for the specific problem. The model embedded in the control structure is a linear time-variant approximation to ASM No.1. The predictive structure only considers the zero frequency component of controlled variables for the optimal duty cycle value calculation. Simulations of the controller behaviour are presented considering no plant-model mismatch.
