Abstract

We consider the problem of water production optimization for autonomous water pumping and desalination units supplied by renewable energy sources, designed to be a viable solution to fresh water scarcity for remote areas. Non-linear gyrators as well as the non-linear efficiency of energy and flow transfers model the mechanical-hydraulic power conversion systems involved. We present a generic formulation and resolution algorithms based on piece-wise bounding and integer linear programming to solve to optimality the global optimization problem of finding an optimal energy mangement strategy.
