Abstract

In this paper the impact of different distance metrics as well as different sortings of the parameter space on the shape of the objective function for model-based leakage localization is investigated. Leakage localization is formulated as an optimization problem solved with a differential evolution algorithm. Distance metrics and sortings are evaluated through the convergence speed of the algorithm and the quality of the results in terms of a topological distance from the leak found by the algorithm to the real leak. The algorithm is tested on a hydraulic model of a real-world network and has shown that a Cuthill-McKee ordering of the search space together with correlation distance metric performs the best.
