Description

The series Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage technology transfer in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology impacts all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies..., new challenges. Much of this development work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers and the reports of advanced collaborative projects. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. The environmental aspects of all of our society's activities are extremely important if the countryside; the sea and wildernesses are to be fully enjoyed by future generations. Urban waste in all its manifestations presents a particularly difficult disposal problem, which must be tackled conscientiously to prevent long lasting damage to the environment. Technological solutions should be seen as part of the available options. In this monograph, the authors M. R. Katebi, M. A. Johnson and J. Wilkie seek to introduce a comprehensive technological framework to the particular measurement and control problems of wastewater processing plants. Of course the disposal of urban sewage is a long-standing process but past solutions have used options (disposal at sea) which are no longer acceptable. Thus to meet new effluent regulations it is necessary to develop a new technological paradigm based on process control methods, and this is what the authors attempt to provide.

Texte du rabat

This book describes the state-of-the-art advances in computer-based plant control. The material presented is intended to provide an introductory textbook in control and instrumentation technology for Wastewater Treatment (WWT) Plants. The book is aimed at WWT plant operators, process design and control engineers, works managers and those who are involved in the design, installation, commissioning and operation of WWT plants. The book is also a good reference source for undergraduate and post graduate students. The book covers control theory, WWT plant modelling and simulation, supervisory control, data management, sensors, virtual instrumentation, expert systems, neural network and fuzzy logic.
