Abstract

This paper reports on the design, implementation and real-time operation of advanced process control and monitoring techniques for wastewater treatment plants. The paper presents the development of a software platform and its implementation in a full-scale wastewater treatment plant. The software platform allows the real-time execution of advanced process control techniques as model predictive control, subspace identification, and statistical process analysis using principal component analysis methods. Results obtained by the real-time execution of such algorithms are also presented.
