Abstract

One of the key problems in real - time control Artificial Intelligent systems design is the development of an architecture able to manage efficiently the different elements of the process. In the management of Waste Water Treatment Plants \(WWTP \), with a great interrelation between the different units, there is a problem in order to identify and solve the different specific situations. A Supervisory System recognizes predefined problems and uses a determined strategy in order to keep the process controlled . The main goal of the paper is to present a knowledge-based distributed architecture for real time supervision and control of WWTP that overcomes some of these troubles. It is discussed the development of the application and the methodology employed in it. The prototype's architecture being developed DAI-DEPUR is detailed together with some obtained results .
