ASM1-based activated sludge model with biopolymer kinetics for integrated simulation of membrane bioreactors for wastewater treatment
This paper presents an activated sludge model suitable for modelling membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for wastewater treatment. The model, later referred to as combined EPS and SMP production ASM1-based model (CES-ASM1), extends ...
Modelling and simulation of water distribution systems with quantised state system methods
The work in this paper describes a study of quantised state systems in order to formulate a new framework within which water distribution systems can be modelled and simulated. In contrast to the classic time-slicing ...
Modelling, simulation and optimisation of utility–service provision for households: case studies
(Procedia Engineering, Elsevier, 2013-09-04)
In the research presented in this paper household case studies were considered. Main objective of this research is to investigate models and algorithms for alternative approaches to current utility–service provision. This ...
Effects of Sampling on Stability and Performance of Electronically Controlled Pressure-Reducing Valves
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2021-01-13)
This paper explains and demonstrates how increasing a sampling period in pressure control may worsen a system’s performance and lead to instability. The notion of stability of continuous-time and discrete-time systems is ...
Modeling Dynamic Behavior of Water Distribution Systems for Control Purposes
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2021-05-17)
Abstract: Water distribution systems (WDSs) are becoming equipped with advanced feedback loops, which require specialized methods and software tools to model such systems. The aim of this work is to demonstrate the usefulness ...
Fractality in Water Distribution Networks: Application to Criticality Analysis and Optimal Rehabilitation
(Taylor and Francis, 2021-07-08)
Fractals have been identified as a common feature in many natural and artificial networks that exhibit self-similarity of the topological patterns, i.e. different parts of the system have similar structures to each other ...
