Dr Adebayo Adeloye to talk on reservoir management at Industry Day 26th February 2013

Dr Adebayo Adeloye will be speaking at our Industry Day event in the Meeting the Hydro-nation Challenge Session on the “Enhancing the effectiveness of heuristic rule curves for water supply reservoir operation”.

Heriot-Watt’s Annual Industry Day takes place on the 26th February 2012. To register please click on http://sustdev.eventbrite.co.uk/

Dr Adebayo Adeloye

Dr Adebayo Adeloye is a Senior Lecturer in the School of the Built Environment, at Heriot-Watt University.

At this session delegates can get a better understanding of reservoir management and the importance of enhanced control curves in guiding the operation of water supply reservoirs. His speech will explore water reservoir storage-yield-performance functions and its development, as well as evaluation of new performance criteria for water resources systems.

His other areas of research interest include:

  • Rainfall-runoff modeling.
  • Investigation of scale (temporal and spatial) effects on water resources systems characteristics and performance
  • Development of data-limited generalised water resources planning/assessment tools
  • Climate change impacts assessment on water resources and quantification of the uncertainty
  • Development of adaptation strategies for coping with water resources assessment
  • Development of more robust control curves for more effective operation of water resources systems
  • Application of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) paradigms to water resources and water quality problems
  • Development of software sensors for measuring water quality variables such as the BOD5  in raw and wastewater treatment effluent streams
  • Development of AI-based models for the operation, control and fault detection of  wastewater treatment plants
  • Development of AI-based models for evaporation and evapotranspiration and application in irrigation water scheduling and application
  • Integrated water resources management and development of participatory approaches to water resources planning and management
  • Mathematical modeling and optimisation of groundwater resources, with emphasis on arid and semi-arid conditions.
  • Optimisation of irrigation water application
  • Economic value of river flow and other data and application in the design of data collection networks
  • Statistical analysis of floods and low flows
