A COMPREHENSIVE MODEL CALIBRATION PROCEDURE FOR ACTIVATED SLUDGE MODELS
Abstract:A methodology for calibration of the activated sludge plant models is proposed on the basis of consolidated engineering experience and a scientific approach. According to the method, the definition of the target(s) plays a crucial role in the selection of the steps incorporated in this so-called ‘Biomath-Calibration’ protocol. For the activated sludge modelers this protocol tries to combine and link the state of the art methodologies for calibration of different processes in a wastewater treatment plant (hydraulics, biological reactions, sedimentation processes, etc.), and it can thus be used as a complete guideline for extensive model calibration tasks. Finally, an application of the methodology is presented in a case study for a nutrient removing oxidation ditch system.
