Management of water systems is becoming more and more complex; this creates opportunities for the application of control theory. These opportunities are the subject of a course on operational water management given to students of the water management department, Delft University of Technology, over the past 15 years. Traditional examples in control theory courses are taken from industry and do not easily map to water systems, so examples were developed that use water systems to illustrate control theory concepts. This provided the students with a link between control theory and water management practice.
