In order to solve the problem of real-time measurement of dissolved oxygen in wastewater treatment process, a support vector regression algorithm based on fuzzy C-means clustering is proposed to predict the content of dissolved oxygen (DO) in sewage. Firstly, the whole samples are divided into many sub-samples by fuzzy C-mean clustering. Then, a support vector regression model is established on each sub sample. Compared with other prediction methods, the proposed model has good comprehensive prediction performance. It can satisfy the actual demand prediction of DO dissolved oxygen in sewage.
