Water demand forecasting for the optimal operation of large-scale drinking water networks: The Barcelona Case Study

Conference:  19th World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control. Cape Town, South Africa. 24-29 August, 2014. Authors: A.K. Sampathirao, J.-M. Gross, P. Sopasakis, C. Ocampo-Matrinez, A. Bemporad and V. Puig Abstract: Drinking Water Networks (DWN) are large-scale multiple-input multiple-output systems with uncertain disturbances (such as the water demand from the consumers) and involve components of linear,

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

Multi-layer Model Predictive Control of Regional Water Networks: Application to the Catalunya Case Study

Conference: 52nd IEEE Annual Conference on Decision and Control (CDC), Florence, Italy. 10-13 December, 2013. Authors: Cong Cong Sun, Vicenc Puig and Gabriela Cembrano Abstract: A multi-layer model predictive control (MPC) scheme with temporal multi-level coordination for regional water networks is proposed. First, a multi-layer control structure resulting from a functional decomposition of water network is briefly presented. Inside each
