Event Information

Title: W05 Aeration Control for Practitioners: Optimization of Aeration, Process, and Energy

Description: Aeration control is complex and directly affects process stability, settling, nutrient removal, effluent quality, permit compliance, and energy consumption. Many aeration systems are inadequately tuned, and water resource recovery facility staff are often insufficiently trained to identify issues and optimize controls. This workshop provides training for operations and electrical, instrumentation, and controls (EI&C) staff and design, mechanical, supervisory control and data acquisition, and EI&C engineers. Participants will learn to apply step-by-step approaches to solve common aeration control challenges in the field.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be able to • identify root causes of suboptimal aeration control systems, • apply solutions for common programming, setpoint, and tuning challenges, and • determine how infrastructure system components (instruments, valves, blowers, controllers) must properly communicate and be designed for aeration systems to perform optimally.
