Abstract

Artificial intelligence software that uses a genetic algorithm and an accuracy-based learning classifier system was evaluated through a small-scale automated canal system model. The canal control algorithms are to manage the distribution and conveyance of water in a canal system without human intervention. A modular design was used for the canal physical-model in order to appraise distinct reaches in the system and later interconnecting all of them to evaluate the program’s effectiveness when faced with a more complex canal system. The modular canal design contains sections with bifurcations and turn-outs, which serve the purpose of testing the program’s operational decisions and the complexity of problems that a population of solutions can resolve. Sluice gates operated by electric actuators managed water flow through the canal by conforming to the programs commands in order to keep water levels close to a steady state. The application of telemetry is contemplated in the near future, it will be used to transmit data and measurements collected from a remote site where the canal is located, to a computer where the program is commanding the hydraulic structure operation.
