Experimental validation of a simple dynamic model of a laboratory scale recirculating aquaculture system fitted with submerged membrane bioreactor

Abstract : Submerged membrane bioreactors (sMBR's) are a promising technology for nitrogen removal in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS's). However, there are still relatively few reports on the experimental application of this strategy. In this study, a laboratory-scale system, mimicking a RAS fitted with a sMBR, \rouge{was} designed and automated, and a simple dynamic sMBR model including biological and physical phenomena \rouge{was} validated. The system \blue{was} analyzed based on measurements collected by a data logging structure involving a programmable logic controller (PLC), an \rouge{industrial network protocol} and a LabView application software. This study confirms the \rouge{suitability} of sMBR systems \blue{within} aquaculture applications. The dynamic model has good predictive capabilities and could be used for the design of advanced control structures, such as model predictive control.
