New methodologies for optimal operation of water distribution systems for water quality purposes

1998-01-01
Two new methodologies have been developed for determining the optimal operation of water distribution systems for water quality purposes. These methodologies are based upon describing the operation as a discrete time optimal control problem that can be used to determine the optimal operation schedules of the pumps in distribution systems. One solution methodology is based upon a mathematical programming approach and the second methodology is based upon a simulated annealing approach. These two methodologies have been applied to example water distribution systems for the sake of performing a comparison. The results are compared in detail along with their respective advantages and disadvantages.

Automated calibration of water distribution networks
Apaydın, Öncü; Merzi, Nuri; Department of Civil Engineering (2013)
Water distribution network models are widely used for various purposes such as long-range planning, design, operation and water quality management. Before these models are used for a specific study, they should be calibrated by adjusting model parameters such as pipe roughness values and nodal demands so that models can yield compatible results with site observations (basically, pressure readings). Many methods have been developed to calibrate water distribution networks. In this study, Darwin Calibrator, a...
Spatial data analysis for monitoring and prediction of selected water quality parameters in reservoirs: Porsuk Dam reservoir case
Yenilmez, Firdes; Aksoy, Ayşegül; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Environmental Engineering (2014)
In the design of a water quality monitoring network, selection of water quality sampling locations is crucial to adequately represent the water quality of the water body when high costs of analyses and field work are taken into account. In this study, a new approach was proposed to identify the representative water quality sampling locations in reservoirs and lakes using geostatistical tools for estimation of spatial distribution of selected water quality parameters. To do so, kernel density estimation (KDE...
