Effects of Sampling on Stability and Performance of Electronically Controlled Pressure-Reducing Valves
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2021-01-13)
This paper explains and demonstrates how increasing a sampling period in pressure control may worsen a system’s performance and lead to instability. The notion of stability of continuous-time and discrete-time systems is ...
Modeling Dynamic Behavior of Water Distribution Systems for Control Purposes
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2021-05-17)
Abstract: Water distribution systems (WDSs) are becoming equipped with advanced feedback loops, which require specialized methods and software tools to model such systems. The aim of this work is to demonstrate the usefulness ...
Fractality in Water Distribution Networks: Application to Criticality Analysis and Optimal Rehabilitation
(Taylor and Francis, 2021-07-08)
Fractals have been identified as a common feature in many natural and artificial networks that exhibit self-similarity of the topological patterns, i.e. different parts of the system have similar structures to each other ...
