One of our main research thrusts is control, estimation and optimization of water resources in Pakistan. We look at water distribution problems in large-scale irrigation networks, contamination spread in surface and groundwater resources and decision support systems for basin management. We freely employ control and estimation techniques from the domain of cyber-physical systems into design and operation of hydro-systems. We are now involved in building several practical systems and testbeds in Pakistan.

An overview of our hyrdosystems research can be found in the following presentations.

  • Building a Smart Water Grid for Pakistan, SSE Seminar Series, March 2012. Slides
  • Modeling, Simulation and Data Assimilation for Indus River Basin Management, Planning Commission, April 2011. Slides

Please check Publications for more details on specific projects.
