In this report, the findings of my internship on the biological treatment of wastewater are documented. Environmental hazardous components like nitrogen and phosphorus compounds are removed by bacteria that are located in activated sludge. Some of these bacteria need oxygen in order to break down ammonium, and a human supervisor can control the amount of air supplied to the activated sludge tank by controlling the aerators. A model based controller has been developed to automate the process. We studied how this automated controller can be improved, such that less energy is consumed.
