Authors: João Lemos xvii , João Lourenço , Miguel Botto
Abstract: Irrigation and drainage canals are some examples of water conveyance systems spread worldwide. These systems are characterized by transport phenomena and strong coupling having a relevant social and economic impact in society. The management of water networks is a complex task due to the large scale and uncertainty. This paper purposes a modular modeling framework based on canal and junction models to construct different water network topologies as irrigation and drainage networks. The framework presented is a valuable resource for studying the behavior of canal networks, first in a development stage and later for determining the benefits of introducing control algorithms to increase service level performance.
