Mathematical model for efficient water flow management
2010 (English)In: Nonlinear Analysis: Real World ApplicationsArticle in journal (Refereed) Published
A mathematical model for the optimization of pump scheduling in a water distribution system is proposed. The water system we consider works without a large water storage facility and hence the mass balance principle is the base for the model. A result concerning the pressure drop after T-junctions is the main simplification we propose. An optimization problem is formulated and solved by a Branch and Bound method for a real water distribution system using data from a small city in Serbia.
