A Clonal Selection Algorithm Based Optimization of Activated Sludge Process


Article Preview

A Clonal Selection Algorithm (CSA) was used in this article to the wastewater biological treatment activated sludge process optimization with the lowest operational costs by limiting total substrate discharge mass. A simulation result shows that the method is efficiency, and it also provides a new approach for other optimal control problem.
