Abstract

This paper reports on the design, implementation and real-time operation of advanced process 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 monitoring techniques that are used for fault and process upset detection and identification. The statistical methods are part of a supervisory control level that allows for integration of the different facets of process monitoring and control, including fault detection, knowledge extraction and controller action. Results obtained by the real-time execution of such algorithms are presented.
