The IWLive Pro system acts as the central core for all SWN
SCADA data. It equips the water utility control room with modeling tools that are both predictive and reactive. IWLive Pro issues regularly updated warnings to alert the control room to problems that may occur in the coming minutes, hours, or days, allowing operators to quickly determine their severity and time of onset and develop reliable response strategies to minimize downstream effects. For example, given a predicted low storage tank level, IWLive Pro will analyze the resulting impact on network hydraulics and determine all customers negatively affected by low pressures. Alternative operating scenarios can then be accurately analyzed and compared to determine the level of improvement and associated cost, with the most appropriate scenario selected and quickly acted upon. The software can also be used to assess the effects of main breaks, pump, valve and reservoir shutdowns, other scheduled maintenance or repair, and any other planned/ unplanned incidents, allowing operators to respond in a timely manner with appropriate countermeasures. Water demand patterns can be updated based on mass balance
making and business process optimization. It allows water utility operators to continuously monitor business operations
analytically optimized and actionable.
PressureWatch gives water utility owners and operators the unprecedented ability to visualize and assess their network hydraulic performance in real time, compare current network dynamics with anticipated performance, and identify abrupt changes that do not fall within normal operating ranges and spot the onset of anomalous hydraulic incidents they can evaluate and act on. This allows them to manage their water distribution networks in a more effective and highly proactive way.
extends the utility of SWN to help operators improve the operations at maximum energy and chemical cost savings. It network model and determines the pump and treatment plant operation schedules that will yield the lowest operating cost while satisfying desired system performance requirements
warning system, QualWatch enables water utilities to continuously monitor and assess network water quality dynamics as they occur, helping them identify breaches in water quality integrity and narrow down their locations, and build the resiliency and agility to respond with maximum effectiveness and protect public health. It also empowers integrity breaches.
optimized mass balance storage model with the network solutions for improving system operations. The network model, accounting for changes in demand, controls and other factors in each time step of the simulation period. The mass balance storage model is then optimized using Genetic Algorithms. Both electricity tariffs and pump switching costs are explicitly considered. The optimized pumping schedule can then be directly fed to the SCADA system to implement the resulting network control policies.
