Open Group Web-based GPS-X Training course
Hatch and Hydromantis (a member of the Hatch group) modelling experts will introduce and demonstrate GPS-X.
This course is about the modelling of wastewater treatment plants and the use of GPS-X as a simulation tool. A successful outcome of a modelling project requires a clearly defined goal, knowledge of modelling and an understanding of GPS-X. The need to understand these important aspects of wastewater treatment modelling cannot be underestimated.
The course is organized into topic presentations and hands-on training exercises.
Time is also set aside to address user-specific questions and participants are encouraged to bring existing plant models to work on. This forum will provide an excellent opportunity for participants to get feedback and insights into modelling wastewater treatment systems.
Participants will be introduced to the concept of Calibration from the point of view of what is involved, approaching the task, data requirements and influent characterization. In addition, participants will be getting instruction on customizing GPS-X including how to make use of the powerful GPS-X feature and why customization is done.
The ‘speed’ at which such models can be developed will allow the participants will have more time to analyze their issues of interest to drive improvements.
