This paper proposes the application of a distributed command governor (DCG) strategy for the operational control of drinking water networks (DWN). This approach is very suitable to this kind of management problems given the large-scale and complex nature of DWNs, the relevant effect of persistent disturbances (water demands) over the network evolutions and their marginal stability feature. The performance improvement offered by DCG is compared with the consideration of two non-centralized model predictive control (MPC) approaches already proposed for the same management purposes and within the same context. The paper also discusses the effectiveness of all strategies and highlights the advantages of each approach. The Barcelona DWN is considered as the case study for the assessment analysis.
