Solution Overview

Distribution network management is undoubtedly the most complex aspect for water company. Distribution network uses largest amount of energy, suffers from largest losses (non-revenue water/NRW up to 40%), and difficult to maintain (aging infrastructure, thousands of kilometers of pipeline). Our solution can help water company managing their distribution network by:

  • Online monitoring & control of Booster Pumps, Control Valves, and Flow Meters across distribution network with cellular/3G connectivity.
  • Online scheduling & adjustment of pump speed (pressure, flowrate) and control valve opening.
  • Web-based information dashboard and automatic reporting.
  • Optional geographic information system (GIS) for pipeline management.

Our low-cost subscription-based online management software enables advanced distribution network management without heavy investment in IT infrastructure and software development project.

Distribution Network Control Optimization

Solution Overview

Online monitoring and data recording of distribution network enables water company to further optimize their distribution network control, to reduce losses/NRW and reduce energy consumption. The goal of distribution network control optimization is to find optimum combination of pressure/flow set point (pump speed) and control valve opening at every point of the system and at a certain time. It requires temporal analysis of distribution network data (flow, pressure, reservoir level, energy) and billing data, combined with hydraulic calculation/modeling.

Our solution can facilitate this optimization process by providing online data analysis and reporting tools. The result of optimization can be tested/implemented right away by online adjustment of pump and control valve set points.
