Dynamic optimisation of small size wastewater treatment plants including nitrification and denitrification processes

In this paper, dynamic optimisation of small size wastewater treatment plants is studied. The problem is stated as a hybrid dynamic optimisation problem which is solved using a gradient-based method. The aeration policy which minimises the energy consumption and satisfies discharge requirements under specified constraints (process and physical constraints) is then determined. The comparison between usual rule-based control policies and optimised aeration strategies showed that the optimised aeration profiles lead, to reductions of energy consumption of at least 30%.
