Aeration Control System Design: A Practical Guide to Energy by Thomas E. Jenkins

By Thomas E. Jenkins

Learn how you can layout and enforce winning aeration regulate systems

Combining rules and practices from mechanical, electric, and environmental engineering, this ebook allows you to research, layout, enforce, and attempt computerized wastewater aeration keep an eye on structures and techniques. It brings jointly the entire method specifications, mechanical gear operations, instrumentation and controls, conscientiously explaining how all of those parts are built-in into winning aeration regulate platforms. in addition, Aeration keep an eye on process Design encompasses a host of functional, state-of-the-technology instruments for picking out strength and method advancements, payback calculations, approach commissioning, and extra.

Author Thomas E. Jenkins has 3 a long time of hands-on adventure in each part of aeration keep an eye on structures layout and implementation. He offers not just the most up-tp-date concept and know-how, but additionally sensible counsel and strategies which can purely be won via decades of expertise. contained in the publication, readers will locate:

  • Full integration of technique, mechanical, and electric engineering considerations
  • Alternate keep watch over ideas and algorithms that supply larger functionality than traditional proportional-integral-derivative control
  • Practical concerns and analytical ideas for approach evaluate and design
  • New feedforward keep an eye on applied sciences and complicated technique tracking systems

Throughout the booklet, instance difficulties in keeping with box adventure illustrate how the foundations and methods mentioned within the ebook are used to create winning aeration regulate structures. additionally, there are many equations, charts, figures, and diagrams to aid readers at each level of the layout and implementation technique.

In precis, Aeration keep watch over approach Design enables engineering scholars and execs to layout platforms that meet all mechanical, electric, and method necessities so that it will confirm powerful and effective operations.Content:

Example text

If the initial assessment shows significant departure from these proportions, the cause should be investigated. 2 Energy Consumption Patterns The literature for energy conservation in wastewater treatment plants recommends that lighting and HVAC energy consumption be examined for possible ECMs. Because building management loads are prevalent in almost any commercial or municipal activity, a lot of energy auditors are familiar with these loads. There are a lot of off-the-shelf ECMs available, so improvements in this area may be very costeffective.

It is very important to include duty cycle information in the pump data collected. Some pumps in wastewater treatment plants operate 24/7, while some only operate intermittently. It is usually most cost-effective to concentrate on the pumps with the most operating time in order to maximize payback. Similarly, data on actual pressures and flow should be obtained so that realistic savings estimates can be calculated. Design values are usually based on a worst-case situation and are generally encountered rarely in actual operation.

Adding nitrification, for example, can easily double the aeration system’s power requirement. If the process design includes denitrification, the energy requirement will decrease because some oxygen is recaptured by the denitrification process. The source and delivery method of the oxygen provided to the aeration process are other significant variables. In diffused aeration systems, the efficiency of the blowers and the oxygen transfer efficiency of the diffusers have an impact. In mechanical aeration systems, the oxygen transfer rate is a key parameter.
