Optimizing zone volumes in bioreactors described by Monod and Contois growth kinetics
2014 (English)In: Proc. IWA World Water Congress: 2014, IWA Publishing, 2014Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
In this paper, an optimization study of simple bioreactors in series is presented. For a given total reactor volume, the zone volumes are optimized with respect to the effluent substrate. Also simple activated sludge models are considered. Both Monod and Contois functions are used for describing the growth kinetics. It is shown that the optimal zone volumes are very different depending on the choice of growth kinetics. In particular, it is studied how the influent steady state substrate concentration influence the optimal configuration.
