Project Neptune: Improved Operation of Water Distribution Networks
Water service providers (WSPs) in the UK have statutory obligations to supply drinking water to all customers that complies with increasingly stringent water quality egulations and minimum flow and pressure criteria. At ...
Identifcation of the hydraulic model from operational measurements for supervisory pressure control
The operational pressure control is a cost-e®ective way to leakage reduction and many pressure control methods and algorithms have been developed. Whilst the pres- sure control algorithm is model-based, the hydraulic ...
A new control scheme for improving the performance of pressure reducing valves in water distribution networks
The use of pressure control to reduce leakage is well known. The benefit is significantly increased if pressures are controlled in response to changes in demand or flow. To achieve this, it is necessary to enable the ...
Combined Energy and Pressure Management in Water Distribution Systems
In this paper a method is proposed for combined energy and pressure management via integration and coordination of pump scheduling with pressure control aspects. The proposed solution involves: formulation of an optimisation ...
Bursts Identification in Water Distribution Systems
The leakage reduction problem as a whole is complex and requires co-ordinated actions in different areas of water network management, such as: direct detection and repair of existing bursts, general pipe rehabilitation ...
Pressure control in district metering areas with boundary and internal pressure reducing valves
Despite operational improvements over the last 10-15 years, water utilities still are losing a significant amount of potable water from their networks through leakage. The leakage is managed on the one hand by reactive and ...
