      volumes during normal canal operation. In order to develop control algorithms for irrigation canals there is a need for simple linear models to be used in the algorithms. The following simple linear models are approximating ...
    • Is it better to use gate opening as control variable than discharge to control irrigation canals? 

      Horváth, Klaudia; Galvis Restrepo, Eduard; Gómez Valentín, Manuel; Rodellar Benedé, José (2015-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Centralized model predictive controllers are common in water systems. The control action variable can be the discharge, and the subsystems (canal pools) are modeled separately. This paper focuses on short canal pools where ...

      Automatic control of irrigation canals can reduce the loss of water in considerable amounts, therefore it is generating ecologic and economic benefits. There have been many different types of automatic controllers developed, ...
    • Predictive control with dynamic constraints for closure and opening operations of irrigation canals 

      Galvis Restrepo, Eduard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-01-15)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Water delivery systems usually work in continuous way based on some prescribed flow conditions and user's needs . However there are situations in which abrupt changes in the operating conditions must be carried on. Typical ...
