Abstract
Abstract This paper applies a model predictive controller (MPC) to an automatic water canal with sensors and actuators controlled by a PLC network (programmable logic controller), and supervised by a SCADA system (supervisory control and data acquisition). This canal is composed by a set of distributed sub-systems that control the water level in each canal pool, constrained by discharge gates (control variables) and water off-takes (disturbances). All local controllers are available through an industrial network managed by the SCADA system, where the centralized predictive controller runs. In this paper a complete new platform connecting the SCADA supervisory sy...
