Paper on multi-layer MPC at regional water networks published by Journal of Hydroinformatics

Journal of Hydroinformatics. February 18, 2014. Authors: Cong Cong Sun, Vicenç Puig and Gabriela Cembrano Abstract: In this paper, a multi-layer model predictive control (MPC) with temporal multi-level coordination for regional water supply systems is proposed. First, a multi-layer control structure resulting from a functional decomposition of water network is briefly presented. Inside each layer, an MPC

Journal of Process Control article on Chance-constrained model predictive control for drinking water networks

Journal of Process Control (2014) January 14, 2014 Authors: J.M. Grosso, , C. Ocampo-Martínez, V. Puig, B. Joseph Abstract:  This paper addresses a chance-constrained model predictive control (CC-MPC) strategy for the management of drinking water networks (DWNs) based on a finite horizon stochastic optimisation problem with joint probabilistic (chance) constraints. In this approach, water demands are considered additive stochastic disturbances with non-stationary
