Optimal operation of water distribution systems for water quality purposes
Altan Sakarya, Ayşe Burcu (1999-06-09)
A new methodology has been developed for determining the optimal operation of water distribution systems for water quality purposes. The methodology is 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. The solution methodology is based upon a mathematical programming approach resulting in a large scale nonlinear programming problem which can not be solved by using existing nonline...
Optimal design and operation of land-treatment systems for petroleum hydrocarbons
Kivanc, S; Ünlü, Kahraman (1999-04-22)
Land treatment technology has been extensively used for the disposal of petroleum hydrocarbon containing wastes. Effective management of land treatment systems requires optimum design and operation of the system in order to achieve the fastest and most complete degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons without contamination of the environment. This paper describes a model that can be used for optimal design and operation of land treatment systems for petroleum hydrocarbon containing wastes. The model is compose...
Optimal Planning and Operation of Multiaquifer System
Yazıcıgil, Hasan (1990-01-01)
Three ground-water management models were developed to determine the optimal planning and operating policies of a multiaquifer system in eastern Saudi Arabia for an eight-year planning period. The modeled system, which consisted of the Alat, Khobar, and Umm Er Radhuma aquifers, was represented by a three-dimensional simulation model included in linear and quadratic optimization models using response functions. Yearly optimal pumping policies were determined for 52 well fields under three management objectiv...
