Etudes de commande par décomposition-coordination pour l'optimisation de la conduite de vallées hydroélectriques

Abstract : This study is mainly about the hydroelectric production problem. What we aim to do, is to develop optimization tools for a chain of hydroelectric plants, using appropriate control methodologies. A hydroelectric valley is a large scale system, made up of interconnected plants. The study of the global control system has been focused to the use of decomposition-coordination methods. Those methods have been examined and applied to a simplified case study (a part of a hydroelectric valley) given by EDF. To be more specific, the price decomposition - coordination method and the interactions prediction method, based on MPC controls, have been considered and compared to a centralized control. Because of the need of implementation in real time, we have expressed the optimization problems as QP problems, so as to obtain explicit solutions using the geometric characterization methodology. We have proposed a completely explicit formulation (both at the coordinator level and at the subsystems level) for both methods. Simulation results with real data information given by EDF are also presented. To verify and validate the designed methods, a first step of implementation on the supervision platform NG by EDF, that allows the communication with a model of the hydroelectric valley (based on the equations of Saint Venant and on the river bathymetry) is finally also included in this thesis.
