Installation and Startup of Advanced Process Controls: What went Wrong and How to Fix It
Abstract:In 2010 a 6 MGD Modified Ludzack-Ettinger (MLE) plant was successfully commissioned to operate under two advanced control systems with the goal of lowering effluent nitrogen concentrations while reducing energy consumption. Multiple startup obstacles in the form of operational complications, instrument and system failures have resulted in the development of a robust commissioning protocol capable of responding to and preventing the reoccurrence of many of the difficulties related with bringing a control system online. The methods compiled provide demonstrably successful approaches to time and project management, programming, and process troubleshooting for commissioning control systems.
