    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract To enhance development and acceptance of new control strategies, a standard simulation benchmarking methodology to evaluate the performance of wastewater treatment plants has recently been proposed. The proposed methodology is, however, for a typical plant and that works under typical loading and environmental conditions. Thus, benchmarking a full-scale plant working under different situations is still a problem that needs to be solved. This paper proposes a data based approach to benchmark any specific full-scale activated sludge plant used for carbon and nitrogen removal and using real design, operational and performance data. The advantage of the proposed approach over the "one-typical-plant" approach, is that it takes into account the very specific design and operational characteristics of the plant that will be benchmarked. A real-world illustrative example is also presented in this paper
