This publication focuses on the COST 'simulation benchmark', which has been produced as a direct result of co-operation facilitated by two COST Actions: COST Action 682 'Integrated Wastewater Management' (1992-1998) and COST Action 624 'Optimal management of wastewater systems' (1998-2003).

The 'simulation benchmark' described in this publication is a fully defined simulation protocol and was developed as a tool for evaluating activated sludge wastewater treatment control strategies. It is a comprehensive description of a standardised simulation and evaluation procedure including plant layout, simulation models and model parameters, a detailed description of disturbances to be applied during testing and evaluation criteria for testing the relative effectiveness of simulated strategies.

The purpose of this publication is to provide a description of the COST simulation benchmark as currently defined and provide specific information about implementing the benchmark into various simulation software packages. es.
