Optimal control of a reverse osmosis desalination plant using multi-objective optimization

A. Gambier; A. Wellenreuther; E. Badreddin 2006 IEEE Conference on Computer Aided Control System Design, 2006 IEEE International Conference on Control Applications, 2006 IEEE International Symposium on Intelligent Control, 2006

In this contribution, the control of a reverse osmosis desalination plant by using an optimal multi-loop approach is presented. Controllers are assumed to be players of a cooperative game, whose solution is obtained by multi- objective optimization (MOO). The MOO problem is solved by applying a genetic algorithm and the final solution is found from this Pareto set. For the ...

  • Water Treatment

    This chapter discusses the various types of water streams utilized in an electric generation facility. Power plants use water in many systems for many different functions. The quality of the water directly impacts the ability of the system to function reliably. For example, in the power plant thermal cycle, the hardness of the water is critical to the heat transfer capability of the tubes in the boiler. Treatment of the water systems at the power plant utilizes various processes or series of processes depending on the type of material being removed from the water system and for the service that it will be placed in. The processes include the following: sedimentation, clarification, filtration, softening, oxidation, degasification, and demineralization. Demineralization can further be broken down into the processes used to remove minerals and ions and these three processes are evaporation, ion exchange, and reverse osmosis.
