Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2019229368A1] Method for controlling the filling levels of a plurality of tanks arranged in a vessel, said tanks being interconnected such as to allow liquid to be transferred therebetween, the method comprising: providing an initial state (7) of the tanks; determining a target state (8) defining respective final filling levels of said tanks; determining a liquid transfer scenario (9), the transfer scenario defining one or more flows of liquid to be transferred between the tanks during a transfer period in order to switch from the initial state to the target state of the tanks; calculating a probability of damage to the tanks (10) during the course of said transfer scenario, according to successive filling levels of the tanks during the transfer period; and if the probability of damage to the tanks satisfies an acceptance criterion, transferring (13) the liquid between the tanks in accordance with said transfer scenario.
