Real time control (Control) modelling of collection systems

This one-day, hands-on course gives you a detailed insight into real time control (Control) modelling of collection systems. The aim is to enable you to set up a reliable real time control model and to analyse and present the simulation results.

MIKE URBAN CS is a GIS-based software system for the data management and modelling of surface runoff, flows, water quality and sediment transport in urban catchments and collection systems. It provides a complete and effective working environment for sophisticated storm water drainage and waste water systems in separate and combined systems. MIKE URBAN covers the modelling of surface runoff, flows, water quality and sediment transport.

The operation of pumps, gates and weirs and valves requires frequently more advanced control options than offered in CS-Pipe Flow module. Especially in cases where for instance a pump station is controlled not only locally but also on the basis of information from other locations/sensors in the system. This can be done using the MIKE URBAN RTC.


  • The concept of Real Time Control
  • Definition of the elements in the RTC model: level control of weir, flow control of
  • gate, predictive control, PID control
  • Setting up a Real Time Control simulation in MIKE URBAN
  • Running the RTC model
  • Analysis of the RTC results
  • Visualisation and presentation of the RTC results
  • Hands-on exercises


Professionals who wish to enhance their skills to include setting up a reliable RTC model and to analyse and present the simulation results.

This course is offered as an extension to the course 'MIKE URBAN CS - Introduction to modelling of collection systems'. Participants must be acquainted with the basic functionalities of MIKE URBAN CS either through experience or through the participation in the MIKE URBAN CS introductory course prior to the course.
