Sump can be definedas a reservoir which is normally located at the downstream of a process, from which water is pumped where solids accumulates. Sump is a system which faces instability due to its dynamic behaviors. Application of control strategies to the sump might add some advantages in handling the sump, where in some process, sumpplays a significant role especiallywhen it involves in a process that have highly hazardous stage. This project studies generally observe the behavior of the sump by adapting control type such as the feedback, Smith predictor, feedforward, and cascade control. In addition, the sump is adaptedwith a neurocontrol from Neural Network Control strategies. The neurocontrol used is the NARMA-L2 controller. The variation of simulation have resulted in a way that majority of the controller are at highest performance when the percentage of solids in is 80%. The application of neurocontrol to the system somehow does not meet the target due to high error that the controller sustained. However, the neurocontrol can be enhanced more by data training and this is recommended for further researchby using other neurocontrol that is available in the Neural Networkcontrol strategies.
