Abstract:

This paper analyses practical issues of implementing and operating process control systems at wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). A major constraint in successful operation of measuring and control systems is a lack of proper incentives. In this work the interests and responsibilities of the involved stakeholders are discussed and a fictitious example is described leading to poor efficiency of the WWTP. Supported by successful case studies, some suggestions for sustainable design and operation of process control systems are given.

Keywords: ICA; incentive structure; optimization; plant performance; sustainability
