The objective of this research is to limit the risks of fully automated operation of drinking water treatment plants and to improve their operation by using an integrated system of process models and emulated process automation software. This thesis contains the design of such an integrated system. The use of the system is investigated in the three identified applications, i) optimization of process control, ii) training of operation supervisors and iii) virtual commissioning of process automation software.
