This work presents the application of expert control strategies for a successful and stable operation of partial nitrification. A high-strength ammonium wastewater was treated in a continuous pilot plant with a configuration of three reactors in series plus a settler. The system was operated at mild temperature (around 25 degrees C) and at high sludge retention time to obtain a significant nitrifying biomass concentration. The implemented control system with expert supervisory rules provided a… CONTINUE READING
