Abstract: The Riyadh Sewage Treatment Plant (RSTP) in Saudi Arabia uses the activated sludge technology treat the sewage. Due to the complex nature of the process, a simplified steady state model that captures the most important features of the RSTP was developed. Actual operating and design conditions were obtained from RSTP data bank. The monthly average plant data obtained in 1997 was used to calibrate the model by adjusting four parameters: max,H m , max,A m , bH and bA. A computer program was developed to solve the resulting model equations. Before running simulation investigation, the model was verified using five sets of plant data collected in 2001 (needless to say that at this stage the model was used without further tuning). Model predictions were found to be in excellent agreement with the plant data (within + 5%). Simulation results revealed the sensitivity of model predictions to the values of the parameters.
