DNPC control of dutch polder ‘Waterlandse Boezem’.

control of the water level using two pumping stations

Problem: The controller had to satisfy complicated on/off criteria, to minimize pumping activity during expensive day hours.
Solution: A Digital Non Modle Predictive Controller to find the optimal pump settings to maintain the water level within the limits
Result: A 5% reduction in energy consumption.
