  • An interoperable workflow-based framework for the automation of building intelligent process control systems 

    Pascual Pañach, Josep; Cugueró Escofet, Miquel Àngel; Aguiló Martos, Pere; Sànchez-Marrè, Miquel (International Environmental Modelling and Software Society (iEMSs), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    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 

    Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Espin, Santiago; Roquet, Jaume (2016-01-01)
    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

    The division of a network in different sectors is a usual practice in Water Companies. It improves the management of the network in different senses. Sectors have more homogenous characteristics and need specific cares ...
  • Knowledge extraction from raw data in water networks: application to the Barcelona supramunicipal water transport network 

    Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; García Valverde, Diego; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Saludes Closa, Jordi; Espín, Santiago; Roquet, Jaume; Valero, Fernando (2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Critical Infrastructure Systems (CIS) such as the case of potable water transport network are complex large-scale systems, geographically distributed and decentralized with a hierarchical structure, requiring highly ...
  • Leakage isolation using pressure sensitivity analysis in water distribution networks: Application to the Barcelona case study 

    Pérez Magrané, Ramon; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Landeros, E.; Peralta, Antoni (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Leaks are present to some extent in all water-distribution systems. This paper proposes a leakage localisation method based on the pressure measurements and pressure sensitivity analysis of nodes in a network. The ...
  • Leakage localisation method in a water distribution system based on sensitivity matrix: methodology and real test 

    Pascual Pañach, Josep (2010)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Leaks are present in all water distribution systems. In this paper a method for leakage detection and localisation is presented. It uses pressure measurements and simulation models. Leakage localisation methodology is based ...
  • Methodology for leakage isolation using pressure sensitivity analysis in water distribution networks 

    Pérez Magrané, Ramon; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Pascual Pañach, Josep; Quevedo Casín, Joseba Jokin; Landeros, E.; Peralta, Antoni (2011-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This letter proposes a phase-shifted pulse-width modulation (PS-PWM) technique for the flying capacitor (FC) multilevel converter that improves the quality of the line-to-line voltages. In traditional PS-PWM, the line-to-line ...
  • Operational predictive optimal control of Barcelona water transport network 

    Pascual Pañach, Josep; Romera Formiguera, Juli; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Creus Rodriguez, Ramon; Minoves Ruiz, Meritxell (2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper describes the application of model-based predictive control (MPC) techniques to the supervisory flow management in large-scale drinking water networks including a telemetry/telecontrol system. MPC is used to ...
