Abstract

This work deals with optimization of a hybrid system for simultaneous bio-hydrogen production and C-N removal by a combined anaerobic-aerobic treatment method. The global model couples kinetics, hydrodynamics and bioparticle subsystem for each reactor model. An existing set of experimental data is used for model validation. Fluctuating operation conditions such as disturbances in the organic loading rate, feed and recycle flow rates result in strong numerical discontinuities that are included in the simulation schedules. ...
