UNIQUE REAL-TIME TRANSIENT ANALYSIS FUNCTIONALITY
you automatically calculate the volume of intrusion due to objectionably low or negative system pressures. This will help you determine the extent of contamination and evaluate the most effective response strategies.
the unprecedented ability to step through an extended period simulation (EPS); select the desired critical time (e.g., peak hour); and launch a precise surge analysis (that mimics SCADA measurements). This essential functionality allows engineers to successfully build and analyze truly representative models of their water networks in record quickly and reliably identify the critical operational time that will result in the most severe transient conditions in their distribution systems. With this information, water utilities can more accurately predict the development of unacceptable operating conditions, identify risks, evaluate sound protective measures, and determine improved operational plans and security upgrades.
POWERFUL PIPE PROFILE ANIMATION
The Innovyze Surge Animate module brings a new level of visualization and interpretation power to transient analysis, helping engineers quickly gain a thorough understanding of the complex phenomena occurring within their distribution
automatically. Tank and reservoir levels, pump speeds, water (such as air valves and bladder tanks) are also animated in detail. Animation speed can be set and stopped or restarted interactively at any simulation time period, allowing the user to thoroughly view and analyze the model’s transient activity (including cavitation pressure).
CONTAMINANT INTRUSION CALCULATION
for example from a power failure or from an intermittent/ interrupted supply, has the potential to cause the harmful intrusion of untreated, possibly contaminated groundwater
PROVEN STATE-OF-THE-ART METHODOLOGY
All surge solutions utilize the powerful Wave Characteristic Method (WCM), a hybrid (and improved) version of both the Wave Plan Method (Lagrangian) and the Method of Characteristics (Eulerian), which is the fastest and most
especially important in systems with pipes below the water table. Pathogens or chemicals in close proximity to the pipe can become a potential contamination source. In the event of a large intrusion of pathogens, the chlorine residual normally sustained in drinking water distribution systems may be to damaging health effects. The Innovyze surge suite lets
