Artificial Neural Network (ANN) techniques are applied to the control of coagulant dosing in a drinking water treatment plant. Coagulant dosing rate is non-linearly correlated to raw water parameters such as turbidity, conductivity, pH, temperature, etc. An important requirement of the application is robustness of the system against erroneous sensor… (More)
The technique of dynamic data reconciliation has been previously studied in the literature and shown to be an effective tool to better estimate the true values of process variables by using information from both measured values and process models. Real-time implementation of dynamic data reconciliation involves solving complex optimization problem, leading… (More)
