LINEAR MODEL FOR CANAL POOLS

João Miguel Lemos Chasqueira Nabais, Miguel Ayala Botto

Abstract

Water is vital for human life.Water is used widespread from agricultural to industrial as well as simple domestic activities. Mostly due to the increase on world population, water is becoming a sparse and valuable resource, pushing a high demand on the design of efficient engineering water distribution control systems. This paper presents a simple yet sufficiently rich and flexible solution to model open-channels. The hydraulic model is based on the Saint-Venant equations which are then linearized and transformed into a state space dynamic model. The resulting model is shown to be able to incorporate different boundary conditions like discharge, water depth or hydraulic structure dynamics, features that are commonly present on any water distribution system. Besides, due its computational simplicity and efficient monitoring capacity, the resulting hydraulic model is easily integrated into safety and fault tolerant control strategies. In this paper the hydraulic model is successfully validated using experimental data from a water canal setup.
