  1. 1. Control of Nitrogen Removal in Activated Sludge Processes

    Author : Pär Samuelsson; Bengt Carlsson; Gustaf Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge process; non-linear control; external carbon addition; multivariable control; cost-efficient operation; feedforward control; simulators; Automatic control; Reglerteknik; Automatic Control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : More stringent requirements on nitrogen removal from wastewater are the motivation for this thesis. In order to improve treatment results and enhance cost-efficient operation of wastewater treatment plants, model based control strategies are presented. A Java based simulator for activated sludge processes (JASS) is presented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interaction Analysis in Multivariable Control Systems : Applications to Bioreactors for Nitrogen Removal

    Author : Björn Halvarsson; Bengt Carlsson; Elling Jacobsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; activated sludge process; biological nitrogen removal; bioreactor models; control structure design; cost-efficient operation; decentralized control; interaction measures; minimum variance control; multivariable control; wastewater treatment; Automatic control; Reglerteknik; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : Many control systems of practical importance are multivariable. In such systems, each manipulated variable (input signal) may affect several controlled variables (output signals) causing interaction between the input/output loops. READ MORE

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; low-temperature district heating; active thermal micro-grid; substation operation; performance assessment; distributed heat resources; chauffage urbain basse température; micro-réseaux de chaleur urbains actifs; fonctionnement de la sous-station; évaluation de la performance; sources de chaleur distribuées; lågtemperatur fjärrvärme; aktiv fjärrvärmemikronät; fjärrvärmecentral operation; prestationsbedömning; distribuerada värmekällor; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Energy use in the urban environment is vital for the proper functioning of our society, and in particular, comfort heating –or cooling– is a central element of our energy system often taken for granted. Within this context, district energy systems and especially, district heating (DH) systems must evolve to adapt to the upcoming decades-long transition towards a sustainable energy system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning and Operation of Large Amounts of Wind Power in a Distribution System

    Author : Shemsedin Nursebo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cost benefit analysis; coordination.; distribution system; active management strategies; control; integration issues of wind power; frequency of tap change;

    Abstract : The global installed capacity of wind power has shown a significant growth, from 24 GW in 2001 to 370 GW in 2014. The trend shows that an increasing capacity of wind power is being connected to the electric power system. READ MORE

    Abstract : The history of surgery is nearly as old as the human race. Control of wound infection has always been an essential part of any surgical procedure, and is still an important challenge in hospital operating rooms today. For patients undergoing surgery there is always a risk that they will develop some kind of postoperative complication. READ MORE
