Hybrid model predictive control using time-instant optimization for the Rhine-Meuse Delta


"In order to provide safety against high sea water levels, in many low-lying countries on the one hand dunes are maintained at a certain safety level and dikes are built, while on the other hand large control structures that can be dynamically controlled are constructed. Currently, these structures are often operated purely locally, without coordination on actions between different structures. Auto..." [More...]

Closed-loop coordination of inland vessels operations in large seaports using hybrid logic-based Benders decomposition


"This paper addresses two coordination problems that exist in the waterborne transport in large seaports, the long time of stay of inland vessels and insufficient terminal and quay crane planning with respect to their sailing schedules. A novel coordination model is proposed and tackled using logic-based Benders decomposition and Large Neighborhood Search. In addition, a closed-loop perspective is ..." [More...]

Efficient multi-scenario model predictive control for water resources management with ensemble streamflow forecasts


"Model Predictive Control (MPC) is one of the most advanced real-time control techniques that has been widely applied to water resources management (WRM). MPC can manage the water system in a holistic manner and has a flexible structure to incorporate specific elements, such as setpoints and constraints. Therefore, MPC has shown its versatile performance in many branches of WRM. Nonetheless, with t..." [More...]

Robust distributed predictive control of waterborne AGVs - a cooperative and cost-effective approach


"Waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs) moving over open waters experience environmental uncertainties. This paper proposes a novel cost-effective robust distributed control approach for waterborne AGVs. The overall system is uncertain and has independent subsystem dynamics but coupling objectives and state constraints. Waterborne AGVs determine their actions in a parallel way, whil..." [More...]

Towards quality-aware control of perishable goods in synchromodal transport networks


"Innovative technological developments are leading to smart ways for producing food more efficiently and of higher quality. Nevertheless, lots of perishable goods are wasted because of inefficiencies during the subsequent transport process. The amount of wastage could be reduced via better planning and control of transport activities. Perishable goods logistics can be better supported by real-time ..." [More...]
