Abstract(s)A model to optimize the water use in the irrigation of a farm field via optimal control (water flow) that take into account the evapotranspiration, rainfall, and losses by filtration and runoff was developed in [1]. Here we improve the previous model to take into account real data of rainfall. Model predictive control is applied to replan. We test and compare different nonlinear constrained optimization techniques for solving the nonlinear constrained optimization problem that arises from the discretization of the proposed optimal control problem. Furthermore, we test different time discretization steps.
