dc.description.abstractWastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) control and prediction under a wide range of operating conditions is an important goal in order to avoid breaking of environmental balance, keeping the system in stable operating conditions and suitable decision-making. In this respect, the availability of models characterizing WWTP behaviour as a dynamic system is a necessary first step. However, due to the high complexity of the WWTP processes and the heterogeneity, incompleteness and imprecision of WWTP data, and finding suitable models poses substantial problems. In this work, an approach via soft computing techniques is sought, in particular, by experimenting with fuzzy heterogeneous time-delay neural networks to characterize the time variation of outgoing variables. Experimental results show that these networks are able to characterize WWTP behaviour in a statistically satisfactory sense and also that they perform better than other well-established neural network models.
