Demand shedding through aeration control can exploit the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) flexibility to help maintain the power system grid balance and reduce operational costs. The reactions and settling process combination is not considered in traditional WWTP models, but it could play an important role in the modelling of demand response (DR) strategies and their effects on the plants.
