by John W. Labadie, Colorado State Univ, Fort Collins, CO, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Computer Applications in Water Resources


Successes in industry and manufacturing and preliminary experiences in the water resources field have documented the productivity and performance benefits obtainable with application of real-time computer control. The architecture of real-time control systems is summarized, followed by discussion of a selection of actual case studies taken from the areas of municipal water supply, hydrogeneration, wastewater management, and irrigation scheduling. The importance of moving into more sophisticated control logic for maximizing performance benefits and reliability is stressed for current and future applications.
