KurzbeschreibungSystematic introduction of material balances, transport processes, kinetics, stoichiometry and conservation. Ideal reactors, residence time distribution, heterogeneous systems, dynamic response of reactors. Parameter identification, local sensitivity, error propagation, Monte Carlo simulation. Introduction to real time control (PID controllers). Extensive coding of examples in Berkeley Madonna.
LernzielThe goal of this course is to provide the students with an understanding and the tools to develop their own mathematical models, to plan experiments, to evaluate error propagation and to test simple process control strategies in the field of process engineering in urban water management.
InhaltThe course will provide a broad introduction into the fundamentals of modeling water treatment systems. The topics are:
- Introduction into modeling and simulation
- The material balance equations, transport processes, transformation processes (kinetics, stoichiometry, conservation)
- Ideal reactors
- Hydraulic residence time distribution and modeling of real reactors
- Dynamic behavior of reactor systems
- Systems analytical tools: Sensitivity, parameter identification, error propagation, Monte Carlo simulation
- Introduction to process control (PID controller, fuzzy control)
SkriptCopies of overheads will be made available.
LiteraturThere will be a required textbook that students need to purchase:
Willi Gujer (2008): Systems Analysis for Water Technology. Springer-Verlag, Berlin Heidelberg
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be offered together with the course Process Engineering Ia. It is advantageous to follow both courses simultaneously.

RepetitionRepetition nur nach erneuter Belegung der Lerneinheit möglich.
Zusatzinformation zum PrüfungsmodusThere will be three exams distributed throughout the semester. The second and third exam are written on the computer. The final course grade is calculated as a weighted average of these three exams, with a weighting of 25% for each of the first and second exams and 50% for the third exam. To obtain the credits a grade of 4.0 must be reached in this weighted average. If you miss an exam you will need a certified medical excuse or prior instructor approval, otherwise a grade of 1.0 will be given for that exam. In the case of a missed exam with excuse/approval, a makeup exam will be scheduled that will be fair but comprehensive and challenging. If you write the first exam you are not allowed to withdraw from the course anymore and it will count as your first attempt. If your average grade is below a 4.0 you must retake this course (or at least the three exams) the next time this course is offered.
