A model for optimal real-time computer control of pumping stations in irrigation systems

, : A model for optimal real-time computer control of pumping stations in irrigation systems. Computers and Electronics in Agriculture 3(2): 119-133

A model is proposed which minimizes energy consumption of the system by searching through the possible operating points of the irrigation network and pumping station (with several possible combinations of pump arrangements) until the optimum operating point is achieved.
