Appliance of Simulation Modelling in Wastewater Treatment

Lovorka Gotal Dmitrović, Mario Lešina, and Hrvoje Selec

Abstract—A complex adaptive engineering wastewater treatment system for drinking water quality was developed, based on data from two real-world systems. Each component, which is present in the real situation with a water purification system, consists of a series of physical, chemical and / or biological purifiers according to their purpose, i.e. the purification value through the purification process. Developed conceptual model is a computer variables model uses randomly chosen values from the theoretical probability distribution of the variable applied. For the validation of the model, considering that the distributions are asymmetrical non-Gaussian distributions, a non-parametric test was applied. Methodology proposed in the paper is based on the simulation modelling. The design of a complex adaptive engineering system for the purification of communal water on the quality of drinking water is the fundamental outcome of this research, starting from its conceptual level until the realization of the described system at project level.
