Stochastic Optimal and Suboptimal Control of Irrigation Canals

  author={Jagan Mohan Reddy and Raymond G. Jacquot},
The Saint-Venant equations of open-channel flow were linearized using the Taylor series and a finite-difference approximation of the original nonlinear, partial differential equations. Using the linear optimal control theory, a proportional-plus-integral (PI) controller was developed for an irrigation canal with five pools. Since the order of the controller gain matrix was large, the Kalman filter was designed to estimate values for the state variables that were not measured. For this problem… CONTINUE READING
