Automatically combines the information from the SCADA system and the model to provide advice for optimal pressure operation of the network. Any reduction of pressure in the distribution network will have immediate and significant impact on the leakage and burst rate in the network.
The automatic pressure optimization module from
7-Technologies minimizes the leakage and operational
cost in the distribution network. The inlet
pressure is constantly adjusted to be as low as possible,
taking into account the amount of water that has to be
supplied to the consumers in the net.
The Pressure optimization module takes into account the fluctuation of consumption
in the net, and automatically provides the set-points for the pumps or pressure
control valves ensuring a supply pressure that is ‘just’ good enough.
Operational stability and cost savings
The automatic Pressure optimization will according to experience reduce your
Leakage level with approximately 10-15%, reducing your water loss, and associated
cost of production and chemical treatment, but also reducing the pumping cost and
subsequent CO2 emission.
The module requires limited or no operation. Training in operating the system is not
required. The module is in operation around the clock. Save money all the time –
every single day of the year.
Overview of consumption
The automatic Pressure optimization module uses SCADA data from the water
distribution network, creating the best possible basis for optimization. It takes
into account the common operational changes, such as valves being opened or
closed, large consumers with varying consumption, and variation at weekends and
Unusual operational interruptions will also be included in the calculation, giving you
the right picture of the operation all the time.
TERMIS Pressure Optimization utilizes consumption data based, for instance, on
weather forecasts automatically downloaded from the Internet. This results in very
Your existing TERMIS model can be utilized directly. If you are using an alternative modeling tool, this model can be transformed into TERMIS.
Implementation of the automatic Pressure optimization requires no knowledge about the operation of TERMIS.
The TERMIS Real-Time functionality can be added, enabling a full and dynamical presentation of Pressure, consumption and flow in the network. This gives you the perfect overview and tells you a lot about the operation of your network. The TERMIS Real-Time functionality can also be utilized to send calculated data into the SCADA system. This expands the overview and may postpone or eliminate the requirement for adding new, costly measurement points.
