WEST

Introduction to the modelling of wastewater treatment plants

This two-day hands-on course gives you an overview of the aspects to be addressed when modelling biological wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). The course provides you with a comprehensive training in the WEST modelling and simulation software.

WWTP modelling is essential for scientists and practitioners who deal with exploring design alternatives, optimising plant operations (e,g, to improve performance and reduce cost), implementing control strategies, etc. WWTP modelling is also an ideal learning tool that may be used (e,g, by plant operators) to investigate the complex process dynamics and interactions that characterise a modern WWTP.

WEST is an extremely user-friendly software tool that combines advanced modelling features such as objective evaluation and uncertainty analysis with extraordinary performance, full flexibility and openness.

COURSE TOPICS

  • Introduction to the WEST Graphical User Interface
  • Specification of plant layouts through the Layout Editor
  • Basic experimentation:
    •  Objective evaluation
    •   Dynamic simulation
  • Hand-on exercises:
    •  Control loops
    •  Biological P-removal
    •  Sludge treatment

TARGET GROUP AND PREREQUISITES

Professionals working at all levels of WWTP engineering (i.e. design, operation, process optimisation and management); academics involved in wastewater engineering (at under– and post-graduate level); decision and policy makers.

It is an advantage, but no condition, that you are familiar with the activated sludge modelling (ASM) concept and design/operation of WWTP.
