MOBILE SUPPORT OF WATER DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT FOR IRRIGATION SYSTEM ACTUAL OPERATION

Topics: 06.01.02 Land Reclamation, Recultivation, and Land Protection

Abstract:

The aim of the research was to create simple and accessible tools for information and technological support of water distribution operation in irrigation systems. The conclusion was drawn that the use of specialized information technology tools (DSS, MAKE, etc.) is not always possible under the actual operation of existing irrigation systems because of their complexity and (or) high cost. It has been suggested to use mobile means designed on the basis of public domain software (for example, Microsoft Excel). To this end, the methodology for calculating the parameters of water distribution which consists in dividing water distribution network into standard control loops and further consequent water distribution processes in these circuits has been developed. As a control scheme for water distribution within the contour a regulating circuit with regulating tanks was chosen. The structure, interface and software of universal software module is developed. To demonstrate the capabilities of the developed means the variant of calculating the water distribution parameters for the Miusskaya irrigation system reach including two hydraulically dependent control loops is given. The dependences of the operation modes of the open water distribution irrigation network on the irrigation water supply regimes and its diversion by water consumers are obtained. The modes of operation of the pumping units of the head pumping station and the retaining regulating structure of the system are determined. The time required by the operation staff to adjust the developed means for a single control loop can be several hours, and the time spent on the subsequent use of these means in the process of operational management of water distribution is from one to two minutes (depending on the qualifications of the staff).
