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 ...
Modelling and simulation of short and long term membrane filtration experiments.

Combined Energy and Pressure Management in Water Distribution Systems
In this paper a method is proposed for combined energy and pressure management via integration and coordination of pump scheduling with pressure control aspects. The proposed solution involves: formulation of an optimisation ...
Bursts Identification in Water Distribution Systems
The leakage reduction problem as a whole is complex and requires co-ordinated actions in different areas of water network management, such as: direct detection and repair of existing bursts, general pipe rehabilitation ...
Mathematical modelling of a hydraulic controller for PRV flow modulation
(CRC Press/Balkema, 2009-09-01)
The main purpose of this paper is to describe a new experimental setup for testing static and dynamic behav-iour of the AQUAI-MOD® hydraulic controller coupled with a standard PRV, as well as to develop mathe-matical models ...
Pressure control in district metering areas with boundary and internal pressure reducing valves
Despite operational improvements over the last 10-15 years, water utilities still are losing a significant amount of potable water from their networks through leakage. The leakage is managed on the one hand by reactive and ...
