With the aim of improving the performance of the waste water treatment plant in wet-weather conditions, an existing ASM2d model of the Eindhoven WWTP was expanded with primary treatment and rain water treatment line. This new model was used to test upgrade scenarios and – with a preliminary global sensitivity analysis (by Monte Carlo simulations) to select important operational parameters – to find good options for modified operational settings in wet-weather. An uncertainty analysis and a longer time series simulation were conducted to test the best resulting scenarios and were helpful in finding successful scenarios.
