Abstract

The design of sewer system control is a complex task given the large size of the sewer networks, the transient dynamics of the water flows
and the stochastic nature of rainfall. This contribution presents a generic methodology for the design of a self-optimising controller in sewer systems. The
definition of an optimal performance was carried out by through a two-stage optimisation (stochastic and deterministic) to take into account both the overflow
during the current rain event as well as the expected overflow, given the probability of a future rain event. The methodology is successfully applied to design an
optimising control strategy for a subcathcment area in Copenhagen.
