Abstract

Water Distribution System (WDS) is one of the important phases of the Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and plays a crucial role in plant, animal, and human life. The WDS aims not only to supply a continuous, stable water amount but also to reduce energy consumption as little as possible during operation. To keep the continuous, stable water amount, the water pressure in the pipe network of the WDS must be maintained at desired set points under the effecting of uncertainties, disturbances, and noises. For saving the energy requirement, a Variable Frequency Driver (VFD) was utilized to control the speed of the Water Boost Pump (WBP) as speed as the WDS requires and a Recurrent Cerebellar Model Articulation Control System (RCMACS) was proposed to keep the water pressure at desired reference under abnormal events. Furthermore, to adapt to the industrial environment, the RCMACS was implemented on the Allen-Bradly Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), and industrial networks were also proposed to connect and transfer data between control stations and field devices.
