In this paper it is concerned to develop control method using jar-test results in order to predict the optimum dosage of coaglant, PAC(PoliAluminum Chloride). Considering the relations with the reactions with the reaction of coagulation and flocculation, the five independent variables ( e, g, turbidity of raw water, water turbidity in flocculators, temperature, pH, and alkalynity) are selected out of parameters and they are put into calculation to develop a neural network model for PAC dosing process in water purification system. This model is utilized to predict optimum dosage of PAC. That is, the optimum dosage of PAC is searched in neural network model for PAC dosing process to minimize the water turbidity in flocculators. This searching is implemented by means of expert heuristics. The efficacy of the proposed contorl schemem and feasibility of acquired neural network model for PAC dosing contorl in water purification system is evaluated by means of computer simulation.
