Abstract

This paper concerns to the application of adaptive control to a large scale water canal experimental plant. Water canals are complex spatially distributed systems which aim at distributing water either for irrigating, or domestic, or industrial purposes. In this paper a predictive adaptive control algorithm (MUSMAR) is applied to a large scale experimental water canal prototype. The experimental facilities with a fully instrumented canal, a PLC network and a SCADA system, are briefly described. This paper describes the developed software module and the MUSMAR control algorithm. Finaly, Some experimental results obtained in the experimental water canal, are presented.
