AbstractIn this study, an ADM1-based distributed parameter model was validated using experimental results obtained in a laboratory-scale 10 L UASB reactor. Sensitivity analysis of the model parameters was used to select four parameters for estimation by a numerical procedure while other parameters were accepted from ADM1 benchmark simulations. The parameter estimation procedure used measurements of liquid phase components obtained at different sampling points in the reactor and under different operating conditions. Model verification used real time fluorescence-based measurements of chemical oxygen demand and volatile fatty acids at four sampling locations in the reactor. Overall, the distributed parameter model was able to describe the distribution of liquid phase components in the reactor and adequately simulated the effect of external recirculation on degradation efficiency. The model can be used in the design, analysis and optimization of UASB reactors.
