A global predictive real-time control strategy minimizing overflow volumes from combined sewers during rainfalls is presented. For an optimal use of controlled sewer transport and storage capacities, the proposed strategy allows surcharged flows. Flows and piezometric heads in the sewer are computed according to flow inputs by a hydraulic simulation model. The optimal operation of the regulators controlling these flow inputs is determined on a finite control horizon using the generalized reduced gradient optimization algorithm. The control strategy was applied to the 23 rain events that occurred during the summer of 1989 on the urban area drained by the Marigot interceptor in Laval, Canada. In this application, the admitted intensity of surcharges was varied to assess this parameter impact on total overflow volumes. A comparison between performances of the proposed strategy and a local reactive control was also carried out. Results obtained indicate that the global predictive control can reduce overflow volumes during rainstorms and that this reduction may be improved by allowing surcharged flows.
