Abstract

The objective of this research was to maximize the benefit of introducing online analyzers under the funding by the Connecticut Nitrogen Credit Advisory Board by collectively evaluating the performance of those analyzers and investigating the process control scheme to optimize the BNR performance. The study presented in this report summarizes the use of online analyzers by water pollution control facilities in Connecticut, as well as considerations for their use for automated process control. Includes case studies from the wastewater treatment facilities in Connecticut, which shed light on the practical approaches towards automated online process control for the improvement of BNR process performance.
