Receding Horizon Control of Hybrid Linear Delayed Systems: Application to Sewer Networks

Conference: 52nd IEEE Annual Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), Florence, Italy. 10-13 December, 2013. Authors: Bernat Joseph-Duran, Carlos Ocampo-Martinez and Gabriela Cembrano Abstract: A control-oriented hybrid linear model for water transport in sewer networks is proposed as a suitable framework for the computation of real-time controllers for the minimization of flooding in presence of heavy-rain events.

Sensor placement for leak detection and location in water distribution networks

Conference: 7th IWA International Conference on Efficient Use and Management of Water (Efficient 2013) . Paris, France. 22-25 October 2013 Authors: R. Sarrate, J. Blesa, F. Nejjari, J. Quevedo Abstract: The performance of a leak detection and location algorithm depends on the set of  measurements that are available in the network. This work presents an optimization strategy that maximizes the
