A mathematical approach was used to simulate the granule size variation in upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor under different operating condition like organic loading rate (O), polymer loading (PL), upflow velocity (Vup), operation time (t0), density of water ( g  ) and density of granule ( g  ). The experimental results of different investigators on polymer loading, OLR, upflow velocity, operation time and granule density were collected and developed a mathematical model to the enhancement of granule size in UASB reactor. Using MATLAB software indices of power multiplier function obtained can be used to predict the granule size (Dg) variations in UASB reactor. A microbial Monod kinetics was applied to determine the substrate removal kinetics of UASB reactor.
