Simulation-Based Optimization Methods Applied to Large Scale Water Systems Control

Ewa Niewiadomska-Szynkiewicz , Jacek Błaszczyk


Recent progress in computer science put forwards the research and applications of simulation-based optimization methods in applied science and engineering. This paper is concerned with computational research for complex environmental systems. The simulation-based optimization approach and numerical techniques that optimize performance of system by using simulation to evaluate the objective value are reviewed and discussed. The attention is focused on the application of this approach to operational management of large scale water systems. The results of two case studies are presented and discussed – flood control in the multireservoir water system in Poland and optimal control of the water distribution system in Canada.
