WEST Modelling and simulation of wastewater treatment plants

WEST is a powerful and user-friendly modelling software for dynamic modelling and simulation of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) and other types of water quality related systems. It is designed for operators, engineers and researchers interested in studying physical, biological or chemical processes in WWTPs, sewer systems and rivers.




EVALUATION OF DESIGN OPTIONS When designing or upgrading a WWTP, WEST enables you to compare different design solutions in terms of performance with respect to specific objectives, such as effluent quality, investments and operational costs. The Scenario Analysis tool and the possibility to define custom objective functions in WEST allow you to select the best design for your plant.

MONITORING OF PLANT OPERATION AND TROUBLESHOOTING A calibrated model of a WWTP can be used to predict the dynamic response to different types of variations, for example in the influent composition, in order to identify bottlenecks and the appropriate countermeasures. It can also be used for training operators through the offline simulation of a variety of control actions. The Scenario and Uncertainty Analysis tools in WEST are very beneficial to understand the complex processes taking place in a modern WWTP.

PHYSICAL MODELS  Buffer and settling tanks  Activated sludge (AS) tanks  Oxidation ditch  Integrated fixed film activated sludge and moving bed bioreactor (IFAS; MBBR)  Sand and trickling filters  Sequencing batch reactors (SBR)  Membrane bioreactors (MBR)  Sludge treatment (dewatering, anaerobic digestion)  Chemical dosing units  Disinfection  Pumps  Controllers and timers

You can also take a more conventional approach to plant design by means of the Designer Application. This allows you to design a WWTP according to a template and following a design protocol, such as ATV. PROCESS OPTIMISATION Improvements to the operations of a WWTP may lead to considerable benefits in terms of process performance, effluent quality as well as operational costs, for example for aeration. The Parameter Estimation tool enables you to identify the combination of operational conditions that optimise a given objective. MODEL CALIBRATION Model calibration is an essential part of the model development process. The local and global Sensitivity Analysis and Parameter Estimation tools in WEST are invaluable to efficiently calibrate your model. DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED CONTROL STRATEGIES To assess different control strategies by experimenting is typically a cumbersome exercise. WEST provides flexible control models as well as automated conversion of Matlab fuzzy logic controllers. This makes it the tool of choice for evaluating control strategies prior to their actual implementation.


RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT When studying novel treatment approaches, you require a software tool that is both sufficiently flexible to capture newly acquired knowledge, such as models and data, and fast enough to evaluate a large number of alternatives within a reasonable timeframe. WEST excels in both areas, demonstrated by its Block Editor and Model Editor applications (for developing custom model libraries) and the availability of the WEST engine on a number of high performance computing (HPC) infrastructures and supercomputers. MODELLING INTEGRATED URBAN WATER SYSTEMS The water quality in integrated urban water systems (IUWS) is simulated taking into account WWTPs, sewers and river catchments. The integrated IUWS library makes WESTforOPTIMIZATION a powerful tool to identify synergies and to globally optimise the wastewater system performance.

BIOCHEMICAL MODELS  Activated sludge model (ASM) Nos 1, 2, 2d and 3  Anaerobic digestion model (ADM) No 1  Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) model  Greenhouse gas emission model  Plantwide model  Integrated urban water systems (IUWS)




WESTforOPERATORS This is a simplified version of WEST limited to steady state and dynamic simulation as well as the computation of custom objective functions. Essentially, it allows you to execute WEST projects that are based on read-only models and plant layouts prepared with higher versions of WEST. It is well-suited for training and for evaluation of operational strategies on a fixed plant model.

WESTforOPTIMIZATION This is the full product that allows you to create both basic projects, which are solely based on steady state or dynamic simulation, as well as more complex projects exploiting WEST’s powerful tools for model calibration (Global Sensitivity Analysis and Parameter Estimation), reliable predictions of plant performance (Uncertainty Analysis) and process optimisation (Parameter Estimation).

WESTforDESIGN This is similar to WESTforOPERATORS in the sense that it allows steady state and dynamic simulation as well as computation of custom objective functions. In addition, it enables the graphical creation of plant layouts based on a read-only model library.

Next to graphical creation of plant layouts, it enables you to create entirely customised model libraries by using the Model Editor and Block Editor applications.

WESTforDESIGN is ideal for design purposes when you have a limited amount of data, limited time and need to quickly compare scenarios such as different loads, layouts or control strategies.

WESTforAUTOMATION This is a software development kit (SDK) which enables you to develop custom applications that integrate the WEST engine with other software systems, such as SCADA systems and databases. It is an essential component for developing sophisticated, tailor-made decision support systems.

  

impact assessment of coastal works on coastline dynamics evaluation of different designs and types of coastal constructions, including groynes, revetments, harbours and breakwaters optimisation of beach redevelopment plans, including artificial nourishment design and evaluation of coastal protection execution of morphological baseline studies. These studies often lead to the definition of more detailed studies undertaken with other tools

If you already have a MIKE 21 or a MIKE 3 on the same installation, you do not need an additional PP module for LITPACK. STPQ3 - THE CORE OF LITPACK The core of LITPACK is the STPQ3 sediment transport model - a deterministic description of noncohesive sediment transport in a single point. For decades, this model has been used and improved and has proven very reliable. Applying STPQ3 in a series of points in a profile and using the actual wave and current climate permit the calculation of the littoral drift and annual net and gross sediment transport. The combination of these data enables modelling and analysis of coastline evolution, including the effects of constructions and other measures on the coastline.


It combines unique expert knowledge about physical processes within waves, currents and sediment transport with efficient numerical simulation and an efficient user interface. The professional user is able to undertake complex studies in a productive and safe manner. To facilitate this, LITPACK also contains a series of productivity tools, such as graphical editors and animated presentation of results. LITPACK simulates a wide range of wave and current scenarios along straight or nearly straight coastlines. It combines these simulations into predictions of coastal profiles and long-term coastline evolution.


MIKE C-MAP Model bathymetries made fast and easy

MIKE C-MAP provides access to an abundance of bathymetric data and, combined with an electronic chart database, it can make the setup of model bathymetries easy and consistent.




ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY The task of establishing the basic model bathymetry is normally a time consuming and expensive part of coastal and marine modelling projects. MIKE C-MAP can reduce this task to minutes.

In order to produce your model bathymetries, you need MIKE C-MAP and the relevant data from Jeppesen Norway.

If you are a professional MIKE 21 or MIKE 3 modeller facing tight budgets and deadlines, MIKE C-MAP is an almost indispensable tool in your toolbox.

MIKE C-MAP works with data from digital nautical charts. With the correct charts, you can create a bathymetry of almost any coastal region in the world. You select the model area and a bathymetry is created directly in the internal digital MIKE format. In cases where more specific or precise data are available in parts of the bathymetry area, these can easily be added and taken into account in MIKE’s Mesh Generator.

ABOUT JEPPESEN NORWAY Jeppesen Norway is the provider of sea chart information in digital form. This is the data which is turned into your model bathymetries. C-MAP data are available in a number of packages. Prices vary depending on the size and location of the geographical area. TURN C-MAP DATA INTO BATHYMETRIES MIKE C-MAP is the MIKE Powered by DHI application which is used to turn C-MAP data into model bathymetries for your MIKE models.

For thorough and detailed model studies as well as quick estimates, MIKE C-MAP will enhance your productivity immediately. Manual digitisation of model bathymetries is no longer required. Many MIKE 21 and MIKE 3 modellers state that the time saved on just one project has more than paid their MIKE C-MAP licence.

TIDAL DATA In addition to bathymetric data, Jeppesen Norway also provides tidal data. MIKE C-MAP extracts these tidal data and can turn them into the formats needed, for example, for tidal boundary conditions for MIKE 21.

ABM LAB Agent based modelling

ABM Lab offers unique integration of agent based modelling with classical water quality and hydrodynamic modelling. It is possible to address questions beyond the scope of more traditional water quality and ecological models. ABM Lab is a flexible numerical laboratory used to define agents, their behaviour and states.




ABM Lab is a flexible numerical laboratory where the user can define agents, their behaviour and states. It integrates with our hydrodynamic models in two and three dimensions (MIKE 21 and MIKE 3).

ABM Lab is a general tool which permits you to define agents, including their internal state and processes, movement, interaction with the environment as well as interaction with other agents of the same or different types.

Combined with the hydrodynamic MIKE models and ECO Lab, ABM Lab is unique for undertaking agent based modelling.

The Lagrangian ABM Lab can work with the hydrodynamics alone, or it can be combined with the Eulerian ECO Lab in order to make the agents react to water quality parameters.

With ABM Lab, you can model: 

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS ABM Lab is the ideal software for: 


numerical modelling of the impacts of dredging plumes on coral spawning and recruitment modelling eelgrass succession patterns and determining the recolonisation of eelgrass modelling the migration of salmonide fish larvae through different wetland construction designs modelling of bull shark migration patterns in a semi-enclosed ecosystem

Movement, which can be passive (drift) or active (depending on other model parameters). The resulting movement can be the sum of several independent movement vectors Sensing, where the individual's sensing of the environment and of other agents is done through ‘Restricted Area Search Functions’ Interaction with other elements, including functions such as create, split, remove, eliminate and transfer

The use of these functions permits modelling of complicated behaviours such as:  complicated horizontal and vertical movement  migration and swarming  foraging and breeding  growth, death and predator-prey relations

It is possible to establish a user-friendly tool that makes it feasible to apply this type of technique in the context of real engineering projects.

MIKE SHE Integrated catchment modelling

MIKE SHE delivers truly integrated modelling of groundwater, surface water, recharge and evapotranspiration. MIKE SHE includes all important aspects of hydrology when your project requires a fully integrated model. No other tool or combination of tools can match MIKE SHE in terms of seamless integration of all the important processes of the hydrological cycle.




The following is a subset of the almost endless MIKE SHE applications.

MIKE SHE is a flexible modelling framework that includes a range of numerical methods for each hydrological process. It has an advanced, conceptual, model-independent user interface with full water balance accounting for all hydrological processes.

RIVER FLOW You can simulate channel flow using full, 1D hydrodynamics, including operation of hydraulic structures such as gates, pumps and weirs. For larger networks, a faster and less data intensive flow routing method is also available.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS MIKE SHE is the ideal software for:          

integrated catchment hydrology conjunctive use and management of surface water and groundwater irrigation and drought management wetland management and restoration environmental river flows floodplain management groundwater-induced flooding land use and climate change impacts on groundwater and surface water nutrient fate and management integrated mine water management

It is possible to combine the hydrological processes and numerical methods depending on the requirements of your application and the availability of data. All numerical engines in MIKE SHE are parallelised to make efficient use of available multicore resources. OVERLAND FLOW MIKE SHE includes both a simple, semidistributed overland flow method for rainfall-runoff modelling and a 2D, diffusive wave, finite difference method for detailed runoff and flood modelling. It can simulate detailed flooding based on fine scale topography in a coarser numerical grid as well as detailed two-way exchange with rivers.

UNSATURATED ZONE For detailed, vertical unsaturated flow, you can use the 1D, finite difference multilayer method based on either Richards' equation or gravity flow (Enterprise version only). Alternatively, you can use a two-layer root zone model for simple water balance calculations in the unsaturated zone. The Green and Ampt infiltration model for dry soil is available, as is bypass flow for soil macropores and subgrid variability of infiltration. EVAPOTRANSPIRATION Rainfall and evapotranspiration are the largest parts of the water balance. In MIKE SHE, vegetation-based actual evapotranspiration is calculated from interception, soil, ponded water, the root zone and groundwater. SNOW In cold climates, MIKE SHE converts elevation corrected precipitation to wet and dry snow storage. Snow is converted to surface water using an extended degree-day method, including elevation corrected temperature, radiation and rain-on-snow.





GROUNDWATER For detailed groundwater-surface water interaction, MIKE SHE includes 3D, finite difference groundwater flow, which discharges groundwater drainage directly to surface water (Enterprise version only).

MIKE SHE SOFTWARE PACKAGES MIKE SHE is available in three software packages:

DHI has more than 30 years of experience in integrated hydrological modelling, which is more than any other organisation in the world.

A linear reservoir groundwater method is also available for basin-wide water balance and management as well as fully distributed rainfall-runoff modelling. WATER QUALITY With MIKE SHE, you can simulate fully integrated solute transport between surface water and the subsurface, including decay, sorption, precipitation and selective uptake. You can also include more complex, multispecies, kinetic reactions, comprising all aspects of ecohydrology, with ECO Lab. See more on page 21. For source water protection and groundwater age analysis, fully dynamic random walk particle tracking is available in the saturated zone. Water quality and particle tracking is available in the Enterprise version only. WATER BALANCE MIKE SHE includes a comprehensive and flexible water balance utility for complete local and model wide water balances - for any time period. ADDITIONAL FEATURES Deficit-driven irrigation from multiple sources, such as rivers and groundwater subject to control and licence limits

MIKE SHE Studio MIKE SHE Studio is the ideal package for distributed rainfall-runoff modelling or basin wide water balance and water management studies. It is a powerful 1D-2D coupled surface water tool for flood modelling when spatially distributed evapotranspiration, infiltration and groundwater are important. MIKE SHE studio also includes the MIKE HYDRO River Studio package. MIKE SHE Enterprise MIKE SHE Enterprise is the ideal package for advanced fully integrated groundwater and surface water modelling, including water quality. MIKE SHE Enterprise includes the MIKE SHE Studio package as well as all other features described on these pages.

MIKE FLOOD efficiently simulates any cause of urban flooding, including heavy local rainfall, insufficient flow capacity of storm water inlets or drainage network, and flooding caused by overtopping of nearby rivers or coastal flood defences. Urban flooding is simulated through model couplings at nodes, pumps, weirs or outlets. Through these couplings, MIKE FLOOD exchanges water between the 1D pipe flow model and 1D river or 2D overland flow model in a fully dynamic process. The graphical user interface (GUI) in both MIKE FLOOD and MIKE URBAN supports urban flood model coupling as well as launching simulations and visualising results. For more information about MIKE URBAN, see page 8.

Challenge Aarhus water is responsible for the operation of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) equivalent to 500.000 PE. The population growth in the area is creating a need for additional treatment capacity. This need may be met either by building new infrastructures, such as aerations or settlement tanks, or by process optimisation within the existing physical configuration. Solution By installing ammonium, nitrate and phosphate sensors and feeding the data into DIMS.CORE, operational data are established and used to make the treatment process more efficient. As a result, the power consumption has dropped substantially and so has the use of expensive chemicals, while effluent quality has improved. Value By introducing DIMS.CORE and additional online sensors with operational control at four of their largest WWTPs, Aarhus Water has reduced yearly operational costs by EUR 250,000. Moreover, by improving the effluent quality, Aarhus Water has saved EUR 150,000 per year in effluent taxes. For more information about this project, visit
