Integrated real time control of influent pumping station and primary settling tanks at WWTP Eindhoven

More Info


This research deals with the design and implementation of an integrated control for the WWTP of Eindhoven. The control influences the operation of the primary settling tanks and influent pumping station to reduce reduce ammonia peaks in the WWTP effluent. The control takes into account the treatment capacity of the biological tanks, the influent flows and the available storage capacity in the individual catchments. It was implemented in winter 2016 and has been operational since April 2016. Model results and preliminary measurements show that the WWTP can be operated with a reduced number of PCs for over 90% of the time
