— Irrigation canals are open-flow water hydraulic systems, whose objective is mainly to convey water from its source down to its final users. They are large distributed systems characterized by non-linearity and dynamic behavior that depends on the operating point. Moreover, in canals with multiple reaches dynamic behavior is highly affected by the coupling(More)
— This paper deals with the problem of set-membership identification and fault detection using a Bayesian framework. The paper presents how the set-membership model estimation problem can be reformulated from a Bayesian viewpoint in order to, firstly, determine the feasible parameter set in the identification stage and, secondly, check the consistency(More)
In this paper, an adaptive and predictive control architecture is proposed to improve the management of inland navigation networks in a global change context. This architecture aims at ensuring the seaworthiness conditions of inland navigation networks, and to improve the efficiency of the water resource management. It is based on supervision and prognosis(More)
In a context of global change, the inland navigation transport has gained interest with economic and 1 environmental benefits. The development of this means of conveyance requires the improvement of its 2 management rules to deal with the increase of navigation (schedules and frequency) and the potential 3 impact of global change. To achieve this aim, it is(More)
— Inland navigation networks are mainly used for transport with economic and environmental benefits. In a climate change context which leads to the scarcity of the water resource, the control of navigation levels and the supervision of these networks become crucial. Thus, this paper is focused on the sensors Fault Detection and Isolation of inland(More)
In this paper, we propose a box particle filtering algorithm for state estimation in nonlinear systems whose model assumes two types of uncertainties: stochastic noise in the measurements and bounded errors affecting the system dynamics .These assumptions respond to situations frequently encountered in practice. The proposed method includes a new way to(More)
