Implementing Real Time Control Systems to Minimize Emissions from the Sewer System

Chapter
Part of the Future City book series (FUCI, volume 12)

Abstract

This chapter gives an overview of real-time control (RTC) systems in sewer systems. The first sections introduce some of the fundamental concepts and terms of RTC and give a brief overview of German guideline documents on the design of RTC systems. Subsequent sections then describe a case study in Hildesheim, where a general global control system is implemented in the sewer network.
