  • Automated fuzzy decision and control system for reservoir management

    Traditional approaches to the management of an artificial reservoir involve the use of linear, dynamic, nonlinear or stochastic programming. Hence a purely model-based approach would be extremely difficult and thus, recently, a large number of papers devoted to the solution of reservoir management problems based on fuzzy logic approaches have appeared. In this work, two management problems of a ...

  • Power plants use oil skimmers to prevent contamination from spills

    Most hydroelectric plants designed in the 1960s were built with a station drainage sump that collects all drainage from the plant. As designed, float switches activate sump pumps that discharge liquids directly into the tailrace. The system cannot distinguish between types of liquids, so in the event of an oil leak, oil in the sump could be released into the tailrace. Modern ...
