Optimal design and operation of irrigation pumping stations using mathematical programming and Genetic Algorithm ( GA ) Conception et opération optimales des stations de pompage d ’ irrigation utilisant la programmation mathématique et l ’ algorithme génétique ( GA )

For many water authorities worldwide, one of the greatest potential areas for energy savings is in pump selection and in the related effective scheduling of daily pump operations. The optimal control and operation of an irrigation pumping station is achieved here by first solving the nonlinear governing model using Lagrange Multipliers (LM) and then through… (More)
