Activated Sludge Calculations with Excel

COURSE NO: C02-035
PDH CREDIT: 2
Activated Sludge Calculations with Excel
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course includes background on biological wastewater treatment, a general description of the activated sludge process, information about several variations of the activated sludge process, discussion of design calculations for an activated sludge aeration tank, and discussion of activated sludge operational calculations. Example calculations and examples illustrating the setup and use of an Excel spreadsheet for making activated sludge design and operational calculations are also included.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil engineers, environmental engineers, and chemical engineers.  After completing this course you will be familiar with the common variations of the activated sludge process used for biological wastewater treatment and be able to make typical aeration tank design and operational calculations.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Knowing the equation for biological oxidation and how it fits into the organic carbon cycle
  • Knowing the equation for photosynthesis and how it fits into the organic carbon cycle
  • Knowing the major components of an activated sludge wastewater treatment system
  • Ability to describe the differences between an extended aeration and conventional activated sludge system
  • Ability to describe the differences between a contact stabilization and conventional activated sludge system
  • Ability to calculate required aeration tank volume (in U.S. units) for a specified volumetric loading, hydraulic residence time, or aeration tank F:M ratio, if given suitable aeration tank influent and aeration tank parameter information
  • Ability to calculate required aeration tank volume (in S.I. units) for a specified volumetric loading, hydraulic residence time, or aeration tank F:M ratio, if given suitable aeration tank influent and aeration tank parameter information
  • Ability to calculate the required activated sludge recycle flow rate, waste activated sludge flow rate, and aeration tank F:M ratio, if given suitable wastewater stream and aeration tank information along with the desired value for sludge retention time
  • Be able to use an Excel spreadsheet for making activated sludge design and operational calculations
