Dynamic simulation analyses of five different sequencing batch reactor (SBR) wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) were used in order to optimise developed regulation strategies and to develop new strategies. The results were applied directly to 15 full-scale SBR plants. To do this, the cycle strategies were extended through the use of appropriate aggregates, or were anchored in the programmable logic controller (PLC) and process control system (PCS) with the help of online sensors. This enabled all regulation strategies to be introduced and automated without problems.
