Applications of discriminative flow pattern analysis using the CFPD method Author: Peter van Thienen, Ilse Pieterse-Quirijns, Jan Vreeburg, Karel Vangeel, Zoran Kapelan Full Paper         Abstract:  Several applications of a new method for flow pattern analysis called the Comparison of Flow Pattern Distributions (CFPD) are presented. This method allows the user to […]

A method for quantitative discriminat...

A method for quantitative discrimination in flow pattern evolution of water distribution supply areas with interpretation in terms of demand and leakage Author: Peter van Thienen Full Paper         Abstract:  A method, the comparison of flow pattern distributions (CFPD), is described in which the specific representation of flow measurements for two different […]

Clustering and classification of aggregated smart meter data to better understand how demand patterns relate to customer type Author: S. R. Mounce, W. R. Furnass, E. Goya, M. Hawkins, J. B. Boxall Full Paper         Abstract:  The most widely applied approach to representing a WDS demand pattern is a 24-hour depiction of […]

Smart Water Networks need Smart Data ...

Smart Water Networks need Smart Data Presentation Author: L. Stakenborg, E. Trietsch and B. de Graaf Full Paper         Abstract:  The increasing use of sensors in water distribution networks is generating vast amounts of data. This data will only be valuable if presented to users (operators, analysts and management) in an effective […]

Drinking Water Networks: Water Qualit...

Drinking Water Networks: Water Quality Monitoring by Online Scans Author: Amani ABDALLAH           1. General:  The capacity to identify and act on water quality changes is a key element for the protection of drinking water networks against intentional and accidental contaminations. Monitoring the process of water treatment and waste treatment plants […]
