  • Fuzzy maximum power extraction control for a photovoltaic water pumping system

    AC loads present a delicate matter for photovoltaic systems, and this is because of the photovoltaic panel's operating point, which moves randomly according to irradiance changes; in this case, almost of photovoltaic water pumping systems use a DC–DC converter to ensure either the maximum power extracted from PV panel or the load needs. For AC motor pumps, an inverter must follow this chopper. ...

  • Use of online nutrient monitoring for automatic aeration and nitrate recycle pump control

    The Northside Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Kinston, NC was expanded and upgraded in 2006 for biological nutrient removal (BNR) to meet limits of 3 mg/L total nitrogen (TN) and 1 mg/L total phosphorus (TP). In addition to the traditional approach of controlling the blowers based on dissolved oxygen (DO) readings, the City decided to implement an aeration basin blower control system using ...

  • Detailed dynamic pumping energy models for optimization and control of wastewater applications

    Despite the increasing level of detail in wastewater treatment process models, oversimplified energy consumption models (i.e. constant ‘average’ power consumption) are being used in optimization exercises. A new dynamic model for a more accurate prediction of pumping costs in wastewater treatment has been developed to overcome this unbalance in the coupled submodels. The model is ...

  • Controlling the addition of Chlorine into a Process

    There are several methods for controlling the addition of chlorine into a process. These methods include flow proportional injection, ORP (oxidation reduction potential) or a residual chlorine analyzer. Each method measures a different process characteristic. Depending on the specific type of process being controlled, there generally is a best choice for controlling the injection of either ...

  • How can I finely control the vacuum applied by my vacuum pump or system?

    Some vacuum pumps or built in vacuum systems do not allow fine control over the vacuum applied. For rough work like vacuum filtration this is not always needed, but for more sensitive work, for example when using a rotary evaporator, application of the correct vacuum level is essential to smooth operation. The new ...
