Genetic algorithm in the calibration of parameters of the hydraulic transients mathematical model

Authors:

Abstract

Calibration of parameters of a mathematical model for hydraulic transient is an optimization problem, i.e. a problem of minimizing the difference between measurements and computations by changing values of the model parameters. In this paper the approach to this optimization task using genetic algorithm as well as excellent results of the application to the case study of a water supply pipeline in a hydroelectric power plant are presented.
