Multi-Agent Model Predictive Control with Applications to Water Networks

Transportation networks, such as water networks, power networks, road traffic networks, railway networks, etc., are the corner stones of our modern society. As transportation networks have to operate closer and closer to their capacity limits and as the dynamics of these networks become more and more complex, control of these networks has to be advanced to a higher level using state-of-the-art control techniques. Such control techniques should be able to deal with the large size, distributed, and multi-objective nature of the control problems encountered, and should be able to anticipate undesired behavior at an early stage. In this talk we discuss how multi-agent or distributed model predictive control can be used for control of such networks. We hereby in particular focus on applications in the domain of water networks.
