Smart grid on energy efficiency application for wastewater treatment



In this study, first, designing and operating conditions of a wastewater treatment plant located in the south of Iskenderun of Hatay, Turkey, is examined and analyzed. It is shown that influent pumps have large part of energy consumption in plant. Second, some simulation and experimental studies were performed on plant. Energy efficiency and plant optimization have provided 40% of energy consumption. Also, experimental study is simulated by Matlab Fuzzy LogicController. The experimental results are in good agreement with the simulation results. © 2013 American Institute of Chemical Engineers Environ Prog, 33: 556–563, 2014
