Abstract: A reactive control strategy integrating time transfer delays is proposed to improve the water-asset management of networked hydrographical systems. The considered systems are characterized by large scale networks where each diffluence is equipped with a control gate and a measurement point. Modelling methods of the networked hydrographical systems with equipped diffluences are presented. The proposed strategy, based on a supervision and hybrid control accommodation approach, requires generic resource allocation and setpoint assignment rules. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the reactive control strategy.

Keywords: Supervision, hybrid control accommodation, resource allocation, setpoint assignment, gridded systems, water management.

Eric Duviella was born in France in 1978. Since 2007, he is assistant professor in the Computer Sciences and Automatic Department of the Ecole des Mines de Douai, France. In 2005, he has obtained his Ph.D degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse on ‘Reactive control of extended dynamic systems with variable time delays – Application to hydrographic networks’. His research interests include modelling, hybrid dynamical systems, supervision, reactive control strategy.

Pascale Chiron was born in France in 1961. She is assistant professor (Maître de conférences) at ENIT (National School of Engineers in Tarbes) since 2000. She has obtained her Ph.D in 1989 at Ecole Centrale in Nantes on ” matching and similarity criterion in medical imaging “. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Radiology and nuclear medicine department, Faculty of medicine, Kyoto University, Japan from 1989 to 1990. Now, she is involved in theme ” Planning, Control, Supervision and Distributed Simulation” in the ” Automated Production ” Group of Laboratoire de Génie de Production at ENIT. Her domains of interest are modelling and simulation for system control.

Philippe Charbonnaud was born in 1962 at Angoulême, France and received his Ph.D graduation in 1991 from the University Bordeaux 1. Since 2002, he is graduated Hd.R (Habilitation à diriger les Recherches) from Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse. Since 2003, he fas been Full Professor at Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tarbes. He is member of the IFAC TC 5.4 on Large Scale Control System. His main topic of interest concerns the real-time decision support systems, and more particularly supervision and control accommodation of distributed systems.
