Optimization of Pumping Costs and Harvested Volume for a Stormwater Harvesting System

Abstract A harvested stormwater and managed aquifer recharge system has been analyzed through both simulation sensitivity analysis and optimization to reduce operational pumping costs and increase the volume of water harvested. The simulation sensitivity analysis explored increasing the size of…

Framework for the optimization of operation and design of systems with different alternative water sources

Abstract Water security has become an increasing concern for many water system managers due to climate change and increased population. In order to improve the security of supply, alternative sources such as harvested stormwater, recycled wastewater and desalination are becoming…

Designing sensor networks for leak detection in water pipeline systems

Abstract Undetected leaks in water distribution networks are a significant problem both economically and environmentally. Across Australia 12% of water is estimated to be lost through leaks and the annual cost to water utilities worldwide is US$14 billion. A sensor…

Optimization of Pump Operation Using Rule-Based Controls in EPANET2: New ETTAR Toolkit and Correction of Energy Computation

Abstract The optimization of pump operations has the potential to reduce operational costs, while still maintaining the high level of reliability required of water distribution systems. The hydraulic software EPANET2 toolkit has been frequently linked to evolutionary algorithms for this…

Comparison of Pumping Regimes for Water Distribution Systems to Minimize Cost and Greenhouse Gases

Abstract A single-objective optimization model has been developed for water distribution system (WDS) pumping operations, considering five different types of pump operating regimes. These regimes use tank trigger levels, scheduling, and a combination of both to control pumps. A new…
