Offers an approach for simulation of surface water and ground water systems which is different from the tradition hydrological approach
The systems engineering approach is developed for control and decision making tasks
Applications of the presented techniques are included
This book provides background knowledge on the development of model based real-world solutions in the field of control and decision making for water systems.
It presents system engineering methods for modelling surface water and groundwater resources as well as water transportation systems (rivers, channels and pipelines). The models in turn provide information on both the water quantity (flow rates, water levels) of surface water and groundwater and water quality. In addition, methods for modelling and predicting water demand are described.
Sample applications of the models are presented, such as a water allocation decision support system for semi-arid regions, a multiple-criteria control model for run-of-river hydropower plants and a supply network simulation for public services.
