The sequencing batch reactor (SBR) technology possesses a high process flexibility and treatment efficiency. Unfortunately, up to now most SBR plants are still using fixed time-based sequential control (TSC), which can not react flexibly. Therefore, this paper will focus on instrumentation, control and automation (ICA) for SBR plants, because with the help of modern supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and dynamic RTC it is possible to operate SBR plants much more effectively.

Keywords: Real-Time Control (RTC), SBR, Instrumentation, Control and Automation
