The activated sludge process is a commonly used method for treating sewage and waste waters. It is characterized by a lack of relevant instrumentation, control goals that are not always clearly stated, the use of qualitative information in decision making and poorly understood basic behavior mechanisms. In this brief paper we examine the behavior of an experimental fuzzy control algorithm constructed to reflect actual operational practice. We conclude that this algorithm does rather well and that a fuzzy controller would be a useful and practical way of regulating the activated sludge process.
