Methodology for optimal operation of pumps in water distribution systems.

Abstract

Presents a new methodology for determining which pump(s) should be operated for the optimal pump operation of a water distribution system in order to minimize energy costs. Mathematically this problem is stated as a large-scale 0-1 integer nonlinear programming problem. The nonlinear programming master problem is solved as an optimal control problem using a hydraulic simulator to implicity solve the conservation of mass and energy constraints. A heuristic procedure is used to solve a zero-one integer programming subproblem. The new methodology could be applied to the development of operation policies or could be used within the context of real time operation. (A)
