ABSTRACT

There are many problems related to pipe network rehabilitation, the main one being how
to provide an increase in the hydraulic capacity of a system. Most of the Slovak irrigation pipe networks are branched, which is case elsewhere. A possible approach to
increasing the hydraulic capacity of such systems is to convert them to looped networks
(thereby providing alternative pathways) and increase their hydraulic capacity with
minimum capital investment. In this work authors deal with application of simulation
and optimization models for water management of existing sprinkler irrigation
distribution systems, mainly in the case that rehabilitation of such systems is needed. A
case study of the sprinkler irrigation system Tomasovo - Malinovo (south-west part of
Slovakia) is presented in detail.

Keywords: irrigation networks, looped networks, harmony search, simulation techniques
