Dynamic optimization approach for solving an optimal scheduling problem in water distribution systems
A new dynamic optimization (DO) approach to solve large scale optimal scheduling problems for water distribution networks is presented. The main motivation of this research is to formulate an algorithm which is significantly ...
Pump schedules optimisation with pressure aspects in complex large-scale water distribution systems
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the Delft University of Technology, 2014-06-16)
This paper considers optimisation of pump and valve schedules in complex large-scale water distribution networks (WDN), taking into account pressure aspects such as minimum service pressure and pressuredependent leakage. ...
Why PRVs Tends to Oscillate at Low Flows
A pressure reducing valve (PRV) consists of a main valve and a PRV controller which senses the output pressure and adjusts the opening of the main valve to maintain the outlet pressure at a given set-point . Although ...
A fast and practical method for model reduction of large scale water distribution networks
This paper presents a method for the reduction of network models described by a system of nonlinear algebraic equations. Such models are, for example, present when modeling water networks, electrical networks, and gas ...
Solving the battle of post-disaster response and restauration (BPDRR) problem with the aid of multi-phase optimization framework
(WDSA / CCWI Joint Conference 2018, 2018-07-14)
The Battle of Post-Disaster Response and Restauration (BPDRR) is a challenging optimization problem which requires the restauration of the B-city water distribution network (WDN) after an earthquake. More specifically, the ...
