Analysis of simple bioreactor models: A comparison between Monod and Contois kinetics
2014 (English)In: Proc. IWA Conference on Activated Sludge – 100 Years and Counting, IWA Publishing, 2014Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
In this paper, an analysis of simple bioreactors in series is presented. The bioreactors are analysed for growth kinetics of the biomass described by a Monod and a Contois function. In particular, it is studied how the effluent substrate concentration is depending on the influent substrate concentration during steady state. It is shown that by going from one to two bioreactors in series completely changes the process behaviour when the growth kinetics is described by a Monod function. It is also shown that a bioreactor described by Contois kinetics has a completely different behaviour compared with the Monod case.
