Aquatoria is a product that emerged from the evolutional process of cooperation with water services companies in Belarus. We have been working in development of municipal water supply control systems for over 20 years already.
We put together scientific research, applied developments and the experience gained through this work with state-of-the-art information technologies in control, communication, simulation, and created Aquatoria.
The conventional approach to optimization of operation of municipal water supply systems is hydraulic simulation
Without casting any doubts on helpfulness of the hydraulic model of a network, we offer an alternative way that provides a more predictable assessment of payback time for investments and allows obtaining a real measurable effect in a short term of several months.
Macro level
Major task of a municipal water supply control at macro level is a search for an optimal load balance among water intakes.
For this purpose the system determinate relationship between specific costs for extraction and delivery of water to a city and the volumes of extraction for each water intake. After that, based on the admissible range of delivery change and forecasted consumption for every water intake the economically optimal load for each water source is calculated.
Calculation of specific water cost includes power consumption of all pumps engaged between the specific water source and its consumer as well as the cost of water treatment. Boosting pump stations associated with the water intake at each particular moment of time are recognized by degree of correlation of their inlet pressure and outlet pressure of the water intake.
