CEIT presents an important experience in the design of advanced WWTP control and remote supervision. The main features are described below:

Advanced WWTP control

Objetive

  • Automatic optimisation of WWTP operation
  • Optimum operating point

    Safety

    Effluent quality

    Exploitation costs

Methodology

  • Model-based design of control strategies
  • Experimental pilot-scale verification
  • Full-scale implementation and validation

Examples of R&D projects

  • WWTP of Galindo-Bilbao
  • WWTP of Crispijana-Vitoria
  • Others: SBR, MBRs, UASB, ATAD

control-remote2

Remote supervision of WWTP

control-remote3

Objetive

  • Remote on-line monitoring and control of distributed WWTPs

Methodology

  • Integrated architecture supporting different PLC vendors, communication infrastructures and operating systems

Examples of R&D projects

  • Web-based Remote Supervision of WWTP
  • On-line estimation of Biological Respiration at the WWTP of PEPSICO
  • DSS for WWTP operation
