Model Predictive Control for Energy and Leakage Management in Water Distribution Systems
This paper considers development of a methodology for an on-line energy and leakage management in water distribution systems, formulated within a model predictive control framework. The approach involves calculation of ...
Improving numerical efficiency of water networks models reduction algorithm
(Drukarnia Oficyny Wydawniczej Politechniki Wroclawskiej, 2014)
Nowadays, it is common that water distribution network (WDN) models contain thousands of elements to accurately replicate hydraulic behaviour and topographical layout of real systems. Such models are appropriate for ...
A tool for practical simplification of water networks models
This paper presents development of water network model reduction software, Simplifier2. The application can be integrated with other concepts applied to water distribution system or it can be used as a standalone tool for ...
Water Distribution Systems
(Publications Office of the European Union, L-2995 Luxembourg,, 2017-05-08)
Water is the source of life. Its global importance is beyond question. It is essential for all human settlements, including cities. Water influences our social, economic, political and cultural lives. Above all, it is a ...
Modelling and simulation of water distribution systems with quantised state system methods
The work in this paper describes a study of quantised state systems in order to formulate a new framework within which water distribution systems can be modelled and simulated. In contrast to the classic time-slicing ...
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 ...
