AC23 - Utilization and Practical Approach of Ammonia-Based Aeration Control at Bonnybrook WWTP
Recorded On: 04/19/2023
CWEA Contact Hours: 0.6 contact hours towards CWEA ECI, AWTO certifications.
SWB Wastewater: .05
This presentation will review two ABAC strategies in its effectiveness at maintaining the ammonia setpoint and partial nitrification using BioWin®: feedforward-feedback based on (i) cascading DO setpoints dependent on ammonia load, and (ii) modified DO setpoints based on microbial kinetics.
Upon completion, participant will be able to understand ammonia-based aeration control systems including feedforward and feedback control, as well as the required instrumentation for operation.
Upon completion, participant will be able to identify alternative options in the design of real time control systems to achieve energy savings while meeting the required discharge limits.
Upon completion, participant will be able to develop a realistic and beneficial approach of how process modelling can be utilized prior to implementation in full-scale applications.
