Project Description

This project proposal deals with the contribution of advanced modelling, control and supervision techniques to improve the management of hydraulic systems involved in the urban water cycle. This cycle is comprised of the drinking water supply, delivery and distribution as well as the urban drainage system, which collects sewage and rainwater and renders it back to the receiving environment, in general, after an appropriate treatment. The proposal involves developing mathematical models of hydraulic dynamic systems in the urban water cycle by using new hybrid systems techniques, as well as the design and implementation of predictive controllers to compute, ahead in time, the control policies and strategies which contribute to optimize:
• Allocation of limited water resources,
• Quality of service to users,
• Avoidance of flooding due to rainwater exceeding urban drainage capacity,
• Avoidance of polluting discharges to the receiving waters in urban drainage, among many others.
The computation and implementation of the control strategies is associated to the use of telemetry and telecontrol systems. Demonstrators of the achievable benefits will be developed, based on real cases supplied by the collaborating companies.
