      One of the major problems to design and implement a control/supervision system for a process lies in the need to establish an ad-hoc system for each process installation. On the other side, an open challenge related to the ...
    • Application of CBR for intelligent process control of a WWTP 

      Pascual Pañach, Josep; Cugeró Escofet, Miquel Àngel; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel; Aguiló Martos, Pere (IOS Press, 2019)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper proposes the use of a Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) system for the control and the supervision of a real wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). A WWTP is a critical system which aims to ensure the quality of the water ...
    • Data Validation and reconstruction for performance enhancement and maintenance of water networks

      Article
      Open Access
      In a real water network, a telecontrol system must periodically acquire, store and validate data gathered by sensor measurements in order to achieve accurate monitoring of the whole network in real time. For each sensor ...
    • Data validation and reconstruction of flowmeters to provide the annual efficiency of ATLL transport water network in Catalonia 

      Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Saludes Closa, Jordi; Espin, S; Roquet, J (2012)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The purpose of this paper is to provide a data validation/reconstruction of flowmeters that allow to determine the annual economic and hydraulic efficiency of the water transport network of Aigües Ter Llobregat (ATLL) ...
    • District Management Areas characterisation in water network based on clustering 

      Pérez Magrané, Ramon; Heras Jiménez, Salvador Augusto de las; Aguilar Martín, Josep; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Peralta, Antoni; Landeros, E (2009-08-27)
      Article
