Development and modelling of strategies for control of urban wastewater systems based on water quality parameters.
Real Time Control of urban wastewater systems is widely used to reduce the environmental impacts of these systems. Traditional control are based on hydraulic parameters ("how much water is going to arrive"?), but recent development in monitoring devices open the way to water-quality based control strategies ("where is the most polluted water"? "where can we send it, so that the environmental impact is minimized"?)
The project will investigate the potential of developing/using new control strategies that consider water quality parameters.
Possibility of collaboration with companies and water utilities
Good modelling skills (e.g. MATLAB)
