    Water Network Operational Modeling

    Make better operational decisions for water networks

Water Network Operational Modeling

Water utilities are increasingly collecting more information about the current and past state of the network, with more SCADA instrumentation, customer metering, and so on. Our solution can help you turn those data sources into smarter operational decisions every day: better forecast system conditions and performance, manage pumps and storage to save energy and money, plan ahead for scheduled maintenance, and react to unplanned outages and emergencies.

Capabilities
  • Develop flushing plans

    • Optimize flushing programs with multiple conventional and unidirectional flushing events in a single run. Increase velocity in mains to flush out solids and stale water, with the primary indicator of the success of flushing being the maximum velocity achieved in any pipe during the flushing operation.​
  • Manage emergency response

    • ​Hydraulic modelers, planners, and operators can use a network model to test variations in operational strategy, tactics, and emergency protocols in a risk-free way. Identify safe, inexpensive options to improve the resilience and daily management of water distribution and transmission networks.
  • Manage energy use

    • Model pumps accurately using hydraulic modeling, including complex pump combinations and variable speed pumps, to understand the impact that different pump operational strategies have on energy usage. Minimize energy related to pumping costs while maximizing system performance.​​​​
  • Simulate networks in real time

    • Connect your calibrated hydraulic model to your SCADA system so that the initial boundary conditions for the model are automatically updated with the latest real-time data. Use this real-time model to keep an eye on the system and help ensure it is operating effectively.​
