Water Network Optimisation

Transformation of a network management approach from reactive to proactive to events, with better operation and maintenance planning for risk reduction

About Water Network Optimisation

Advanced water utilities monitor their distribution networks acquiring data from network critical points (ie. production and storage points, inlets of distribution zone, etc.), and making them available in real time to operators in a centralised SCADA control room.

However, SCADA control typically provides point data only. It does not provide information about the rest of the network.

Make the Most of Your Water Network

The Water Network Optimisation solution enables operations managers and control room operators to manage their network in a more informed manner by:

  • Incorporating virtual sensors apprising operators of hydraulic and water quality parameters at any point of the distribution network, thus enhancing real-time supervision in SCADA.
  • Evaluating the evolution of water network behaviour, and identifying potential issues regarding levels of service breaches (in terms of pressure, water quality, etc.) over the next hours and days.
  • Analysing the results of an alternative what-if scenario and comparing it with the business-as- usual scenario — without having to rely on hydraulic simulations run from other departments. 
  • Analysing a complete set of key performance indicators (KPIs) on energy usage, network pressure conditions, and water quality.

Business Value of Water Network Optimisation

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.”  Water Network Optimisation is able to trigger alarms associated to potential anomalies detected by simulations. This enables operators to be warned of current critical situations in the network so that immediate actions to prevent or mitigate service disruptions can be taken with enough lead time.

  • Quicker and improved operational awareness, including early warning on deviations from expected levels of service 
  • Transformation of a network management approach from reactive to proactive to events,  with better operation and maintenance planning for risk reduction 
  • Prioritisation of intervention on network and pumping stations 
  • Improved control room user experience with visualisation of contextualised operational data and enhanced alert management within an operator-friendly SCADA environment, without having to switch between applications
