Project Description

This project addresses the global control of sewer networks using a predictive optimal control approach. The sewer network is modelled using a conceptual modelling approach based on decomposing the network in catchments and representing them as virtual tanks. This conceptual modelling approach allows real-time model calibration and control of the sewer network. The global control problem of sewer network is solved using an optimal/predictive control algorithm. The global control results obtained using this predictive optimal control scheme will be compared with those obtained using current local control system.
