Abstract: Dynamic regulation is a remote management, control and monitoring system which is entirely automated and ensures permanent closed-loop control of all water movements and safety devices. The paper concentrates on certain more interesting features, and especially, communication of requirements by users, forecasting, the hydraulic aspects of a control system and safety. The specific nature of the Canal de Provence and its control method is an entirely man-made water conveyance and distribution system comprising a branched network of various types of structure, mainly functioning by gravity flow. The system incorporates secondary, pump-operated conduits at its extremities. The system supplies water to 40,000 ha of agricultural land, 70 towns and villages and a great many industries. It operates on an 'on-request' basis.
