PLC Design for Wastewater Treatment

This project is aimed at designing a comprehensive PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) system for the automatic operation and control of three wastewater treatment plants under construction in northern Saskatchewan. We are going to use mathematical modeling to complete this task. In order to maximize the safety level of the operating plant, we will carefully investigate and incorporate each possible error case into the PLC system. The deliverables from this project will enable deployment of similar wastewater treatment plants to improve availability of clean water, and to reduce environmental impact, in diverse communities, and particularly in underserved communities in northern Saskatchewan.
