This report is a systems engineering handbook for the automation of activated sludge wastewater treatment processes. Process control theory and application are discussed to acquaint the reader with terminology and fundamentals. Successful unit process control strategies currently in use are discussed. Alternative methods of control implementation are presented where other considerations such as reliability or flexibility are important. A method for preparing a cost effective analysis is detailed through the use of examples. Currently available instrumentation is reviewed to serve as a guide for the selection of instruments for specific applications. The design guide section reviews some of the aspects of control system design and includes examples of documentation required to convey the engineer's and user's requirements. The concluding section presents recommendations for further studies which will advance the application of automation in wastewater treatment.
