Overview

Leveraging Data as an Enabler to Optimize Your Water Network

Water utilities monitor their distribution networks, acquiring data from network critical points and making them available in real time to operators in a centralized SCADA. However, a SCADA control typically provides point data and does not provide information about the rest of the network.

With a vast water distribution network, it is imperative for water utilities to have an overview of their entire network in real time and in “future-time.” The Water Network Optimisation is able to trigger alarms associated with potential anomalies detected by simulations. This enables operators to be warned of current critical situations in the network in order to take immediate action. The solution enables Operations Managers and Control Room Operators to manage their network in a more informed manner by:

  • Incorporating virtual sensors
  • Evaluating the evolution of water network behavior and identifying potential issues
  • Analyzing the results of alternative what-if scenario
  • Water Network Optimisation
