Abstract

Mathematical modelling has been tested as a decision support system to management of a biological WWTP, aimed at optimizing energetic efficiency. A conventional activated sludge plant has been studied and the ASM1 mathematical model has been implemented, calibrated and validated, by using West 2012, DHI software. Optimal operating strategies, under different operating conditions, such as variable influent loading, have been defined. Also, indicators concerning energy efficiency and effluent quality have been defined and quantified.
