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 ...
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 ...
Optimisation of pump and valve schedules in complex large-scale water distribution systems using GAMS modelling language
(Procedia Engineering, Elsevier, 2013-09-04)
This paper considers optimisation of pump and valve schedules in complex large-scale water distribution networks (WDN). An optimisation model is automatically generated in GAMS language from a hydraulic model in EPANET ...
