Analysis of Hypothetical Water Distribution Network from the Application of Three Calibration Optimization Algorithms Applying the Genetic Algorithms

Fernando Silva, Thaisa Dias Goulart, Regina Mambeli Barros
The calibration of models applied to water distribution network systems is fundamental, as this improves the computational algorithms constructed from mathematical models. In this work from a hypothetical network, three proposed calibration algorithms were tested, (a) in terms of roughness of the model; (b) in terms of roughness and random demand and (c) in terms of random roughness and pressure directed demand. The results show few differences for the three algorithms tested, the first and
more » ... , the first and third results are almost identical and slightly different from the second. However, these are basis for application in real networks, where surely the more complex algorithms can produce advantages.
