INNOVATIVE HYBRID MASS BALANCED STORAGE OPTIMIZATION APPROACH
BalanceNet combines an optimized mass balance storage model with a network model solver to quickly produce a set
storage model, accounting for changes in demand, controls and other factors in each time step of the simulation period. The mass balance storage model is then optimized using Genetic Algorithms. Both electricity tariffs and pump switching costs are explicitly considered. The optimized pumping schedule can then be directly fed to the SCADA system for use in implementing the resulting network control policies. These advantages represent fundamental advances in how readily
