Modeling, Analysis & Decision Making for Coupled Water Systems in the Presence of Significance Uncertainty
The purpose of this research is to improve water management modeling and decision making using intelligent control systems and current state-of-the-art water management techniques. This semester the research is focused on simulating a water resource system in Simulink as a closed-loop control system that incorporates physical constraints, social-political-economic factors, and cost-benefit-risk analysis into the simulation model. The control system will serve as a framework that can be used to answer critical planning questions. Such a framework is invaluable to the sustainable and efficient management of natural resources, an integral component of a functioning society.
