A crucial factor for the quality and results of the on-line simulation of a municipal sewage treatment system is the provision of the requisite data in adequate quality and density. Since the measured data cannot be incorporated in a simulation model without prior processing, it should be prepared in such a way that it can be converted to the model-related input quantities. If individual input measuring signals fail, substitute value concepts must be developed which are based on the remaining information. With this it is possible to ensure the continuous provision of data. Various approaches are possible in seeking a solution to this problem. At the Wupperverband a detailed programme of investigation on the subject area of the processing of inflow data is being implemented as a component of future on-line simulation at Wuppertal-Buchenhofen STP.
