%X There are different automatic downstream control algorithms developed to increase the flexibility of the irrigation system. CARDD control logic is one of the heuristic and distance automatic downstream control systems. In this research, mathematical model of the CARDD control logic coordinated with ICSS hydrodynamic model was developed and the CARDD control logic was tested and evaluated under different situations. In order to evaluate the performance of this control algorithm, one of the canals suggested by ASCE (canal number 2) was used. The CARDD control algorithm was tested under the operational scenarios suggested by ASCE in which the control algorithm was evaluated by intense and gradual flow changes in a newly constructed (tuned) canal. Performance indicators were calculated and analysed. In the case of gradual flow changes, the maximum diversion of the water depth from the target was about 5% and was always in permitted range. In intense flow changes, the maximum diversion of the water depth from the target was about 8% and it was recovered in about 1 hour, which is a considerable time. The charts showing the variation of water depth at each turnout and the calculated performance indicators showed the satisfactory performance of CARDD control algorithm in gradual flow changes. In intense flow changes, although the maximum variation of the water depth was limited, the system response time was relatively long.
