Online Simplification of Water Distribution Network Models
This paper presents an implementation of the simplification algorithm of water distribution network (WDN) models for the purpose of inclusion to the online optimisation strategy for the energy and leakage management in WDN, formulated within a model predictive control framework. The advantage of the online model reduction is adaptation to abnormal situations and structural changes in a network. The implementation was carried out with the utilisation of nowadays parallel programing techniques to distribute the simplification tasks across multiple CPU treads. This resulted in significant reduction of the computational time required for the simplification process of the large–scale WDN models. The authors also highlighted a problem of the energy distribution when the reduced and original models were compared.
