Continuous-time and discrete-time design of water flow and water level regulators. (English) Zbl 0592.93003

Using classical methods of linear control theory some aspects of water flow and water level control are analyzed. Mathematical models of the detention reservoir, the regulator gate and the sewer are established with the help of the new literature in this field. Based on these models, some criteria of performance are analyzed: stability, unit step responses etc. These results and an illustrative example are very important for the design of many water resources, of water distributions and of sewer control systems.
