abstract
"We present a complete model for the optimal planning of water distribution and production in a large-scale water supply network. Since this network is mesh-structured, the energy conservation laws need to be respected. Pressure loss restrictions are hereby introduced, which are highly nonlinear and need a specific approach to be dealt with. Furthermore the model contains binary variables which make it belong to the class of MINLP. We device an algorithm that separates our problem in multiple subproblems and efficiently handles the pressure loss constraints. Results on a real-world network are thoroughly discussed and compared with other solution approaches."
We present a complete model for the optimal planning of water production and distribution in a large-scale water supply network. Since this network is mesh-structured, energy conservation laws must be satisfied. Nonlinear pressure loss restrictions are hereby introduced, which require an adapted solution approach. Furthermore the model contains binary variables. We device an algorithm that decomposes our problem into multiple "tractable" subproblems and efficiently handles the difficult constraints. Results on a real-world network are discussed and compared with other solution approaches.
