  • Short-term demand forecast using a bank of neural network models trained using genetic algorithms for the optimal management of drinking water networks

    Efficient management of a drinking water network reduces the economic costs related to water production and transport (pumping). Model predictive control (MPC) is nowadays a quite well-accepted approach for the efficient management of the water networks because it allows formulating the control problem in terms of the optimization of the economic costs. Therefore, short-term forecasts are a ...
