Advanced water utilities monitor their distribution networks, acquiring data from network critical points (production and storage points, inlets of distribution zone, etc.) and making them available in real time to operators in a centralized SCADA.
However, a SCADA control typically provides point data and does not provide information about the rest of the network. Water Network Optimization by AVEVA enables Operations Managers and Control Room Operators to manage their network in a more informed manner.
With visibility into the entire water network in real time, water utilities are now able to predict future changes in their water network performance and set out corrective actions before critical events occur. This visibility allows for more cost-effective operations and maintenance and more accurate demand management.
Incorporate virtual sensors apprising operators of hydraulic and water quality parameters at any point of the distribution network, thus enhancing real-time supervision in SCADA.
Evaluate the evolution of water network behavior, and identify potential issues regarding levels of service breaches (in terms of pressure, water quality, etc.) over the next hours and days.
Analyze the results of an alternative what-if scenario and compare it with the business-as-usual scenario — without having to rely on hydraulic simulations run from other departments.
Analyze a complete set of key performance indicators (KPIs) on energy usage, network pressure conditions, and water quality.
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 Optimization 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.
Transform your network management approach from reactive to proactive, with better operations and maintenance planning for risk reduction.
