This paper proposes the use of predictive optimal control as a suitable
methodology to manage efficiently transport water networks. The predictive optimal
controller is implemented using MPC control techniques. The Arrêt-Darré/Arros dam-river
system located in the Southwest region of France is proposed as case study. A high-fidelity
dynamic simulator based on the full Saint-Venant equations and able to reproduce this
system is developed in MATLAB/SIMULINK to validate the performance of the developed
predictive optimal control system. The control objective in the Arrêt-Darré/Arros dam-river
system is to guarantee an ecological flow rate at a control point downstream of the Arrêt-
Darré dam by controlling the outflow of this dam in spite of the unmeasured disturbances
introduced by rainfalls incomings and farmer withdrawals.
