"Running BIGMOD and Optimatics’ software together will allow us to significantly increase the options we can consider to find optimisation outcomes for the river management challenges we are working on."
As energy prices continue to rise, power saving is a key factor for many water authorities. It is critical to ensure day-to-day operations run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Optimatics' tried and tested solutions can help you get the optimal performance from your system while supplying your customers with improved water quality water.
Minimize your energy costs while still ensuring efficient hydraulic performance - make use of optimization techniques to achieve optimal operating strategies in real-time.
Pumping water to customers is a high energy business. As energy prices soar, saving power is key.
Many cities not only have inefficient operational procedures, such as pumping up to high level tanks and then pressure reducing to lower level customers, they also get caught out with complex power tariff rules and high instantaneous demand charges.
Through better use of storages, taking advantage of tariff structures, minimizing static lift and using pumps as close to their maximum efficiency as possible, Optimizer WRT can minimize the cost and energy use of your system.
Determine the best combination of pump schedules and key valve settings to ensure power consumption is minimized and water quality maintained for the coming day's requirements.
By creating an optimization routine for the operation of a system, water authorities can perform daily runs to ensure that both power consumption and water quality within a system are optimized for the coming day.
We tailor our Optimizer WRT software to suit your system's specific requirements.
During the process, the optimal pump start and stop times are calculated for the estimated upcoming demands during the day, while ensuring customer service standards are maintained. The tool then presents the recommended daily pumping schedule to your operators for review, ensuring you have final say as to the next day's schedule.
The flexibility of Optimizer WRT allows for different demand conditions. This is particularly important when assessing the different key drivers of an optimization for summer conditions as opposed to winter ones.
Finding the least cost solution for your water network doesn't mean you have to compromise the quality of your water. By including simple water quality measures in your optimization process, Optimatics can help you find the least cost solution while still meeting the high water quality standard you demand.
Optimatics analyses water quality parameters such as water age, chlorine residuals and disinfection by-products to ensure that water is kept at the high standard required by water authorities. Optimatics can carry out broad level water quality studies over entire water systems or create specific tools to optimize water quality on a daily basis.
By including water quality measures in the optimization process, a least cost solution can be established that has these parameters within allowable limits. To achieve this, the optimization process analyses a combination of disinfection, operational strategies and water source selection to find the optimal solution.
With the experience of successful projects for major water utilities around the world, Optimatics has the proven reliability to ensure your capital plan is the best design for your needs.... read on
