First a hydraulic profile
of the existing water distribution system was created--including all existing pipes, valves, pressure-reducing valves, booster pumps, reservoirs, and well production curves--then a profile of the ultimate service area.
This information is supplemented in a variety of ways by the new LDS, including a real time hydraulic profile
of the pipeline, batch inventory and position, leak detection information, and operational information.
Although the cleaning mechanism worked as designed, its unanticipated impact on the hydraulic profile
became a major concern for the long-term hydraulic capacity of the UV channels.
As with your car's dashboard, where dials and gauges inform you of your speed, fuel level, engine temperature and so on, you can easily envision PipelineDashboard informing you of current pipeline integrity, compressor power and fuel consumption, hydraulic profiles
, meter and contract allocations, point and contract imbalances, and much more.
Up to six different hydraulic profiles
can be stored in the Digivalve.
