1 Water Supply Simulation of Water Distribution Networks The Use of EPANET Mohammad N. Almasri 1

2 Introduction This presentation focuses on two issues: The simulation of water distribution networks (WDNs) using EPANET The optimal design of water distribution networks 2

3 Definitions A WDN is comprised of a number of links connected together to form loops or branches These links contain pumps, fittings, valves, etc.. Links: A link is a segment of the network that has a constant flow and no branches. Each link may contain one or more pipes (with different dff diameters) connected in series 3 Pipes: A pipe is a segment of a link that has a constant flow, constant diameter, and no branches

4 Pipes and Links D 1 A pipe L D 3 D 2 D 1 A link L 3 L 2 L 1 L 4

5 Definitions Nodes: They are the end points of the pipe sections where two or more links are joined. Water can enter or leave the network at these nodes Loops: The loop is a closed circuit i consists of a series of links in which the demand nodes are supplied from more than one pipe The path: It represents the way or the route through which the demand nodes are reached from the source nodes 5

6 Example of a Water Distribution Network 6

7 Main Principles of Network Analysis Continuity: The algebraic sum of the flow rates in the pipes meeting at a node together with any external flows is zero Q 3 D Q 1 + Q 2 = Q 3 + D Q 1 Q 2 D = Q 1 + Q 2 -Q 3 A demand node The node is connected to three supplying pipes 7

8 Main Principles of Network Analysis Energy conservation: For all paths around closed loops and between fixed grade nodes, the accumulated energy loss including minor losses minus any energy gain or heads generated by pumps p must be zero hf 2 A part of a looped network Closed loop hf 3 + hf 1 Given total headloss for each link (pipe) as h f Assume counterclockwise to be positive hf 4 -hf 1 hf 4 + hf 3 + hf 2 = 0 8

9 Branched WDNs Q 5 Q Q 4 [4] [6] Q 6 Q 3 [3] 4 [5] 6 Q 2 [2] 3 [1] 2 1 In branched WDNs, there is only one path (route) from the source node to each node How can we compute the flow in each link? 9

10 Branched WDNs 20 [1] 1 What is the flow in each link? 30 [2] [4] [3] [6] 60 [5] 6 10

11 Looped WDNs More than one path to each node In looped network, how can we compute the flow in each link? 11

13 h f Energy Loss in Pipelines Hazen Williams Formula = C Q HW D 4.87 L h f : head loss (m); L: pipe length (m) D: pipe diameter (in) Q: is flowrate in the pipe (m 3 /h) C HW : Hazen Williams coefficient (-) Cast Iron: New: year old: year old: 110 Plastic:

14 What is EPANET? EPANET is a program for analyzing the hydraulic and water quality behavior of WDNs Developed by the US Environmental Protection ti Agency It is a public domain software that may be freely copied and distributed A complete Users Manual as well as full source code and other updates can be downloaded from: / / / p 14

15 What Does EPANET Do? Analyzing WDNs. This means mainly the following: Determination of the flow in each link Determination of pressure head at each node Additional outcome includes the simulation of chlorine concentration in each link and at each node 15

16 Elements Source reservoir Pumps Pipes Nodes Tanks Valves 16

17 EPANET Elements Reservoirs Reservoirs are nodes that represent an external source or sink of water to the network. They are used to model lakes, rivers, and groundwater aquifers. Reservoirs can also serve as water quality source points The primary input properties for a reservoir are its hydraulic head and initial water quality Because a reservoir is a boundary point to a network, its head and water quality cannot be affected by what happens within the network. Therefore it has no computed output properties. However its head can be made to vary with time by assigning a time pattern to it 17

18 EPANET Elements Tanks Tanks are nodes with storage capacity, where the volume of stored water can vary with time during a simulation The primary input properties for tanks are: Bottom elevation Diameter (or shape if non-cylindrical) Initial, minimum i and maximum water levels l Initial water quality The principal computed outputs are: Total head (water surface elevation) water quality Tanks are required to operate within their minimum i and maximum levels 18

19 EPANET Elements Pipes Pipes convey water from one point in the network to another EPANET assumes that all pipes are full at all times The principal hydraulic input parameters for pipes are: Diameter, Length, Roughness coefficient, and Initial status (open, closed, or contains a check valve) The water quality inputs for pipes consist of: Bulk reaction coefficient Wall reaction coefficient 19

20 EPANET Elements Pipes Computed outputs for pipes include: Flow rate, Velocity, Headloss, Friction factor, Reaction rate, and Water quality The hydraulic head lost by water flowing in a pipe due to friction with the pipe walls can be computed using three different formulas: Hazen-Williams Formula, Darcy-Weisbach Formula, and Chezy- Manning Formula 20 Minor losses caused by bends and fittings can also be accounted for by assigning i the pipe a minor loss coefficient

21 EPANET Elements Pumps The principal input parameter for a pump is its pump curve Pumps can be turned on and off at preset times Variable speed pumps can be considered EPANET can also compute the energy consumption and cost of a pump 21

22 EPANET Elements Valves Valves are used to control the pressure or flow at a specific point in the network The main different types of valves considered in EPANET include: PRV (Pressure Reducing Valve): Used to limit pressure PSV (Pressure Sustaining Valve): To maintain pressure at a certain value PBV (Pressure Breaker Valve): Forces a specified pressure loss across the valve FCV (Flow Control Valve): Used to control flow GPV (General Purpose Valve): Can be used to represent a link where the flow headloss relationship is supplied by the user 22

23 Network Layout 23

24 Time Pattern of Demands You can address the variability in demands through multipliers of the Base Demand at each node This is called in EPANET Time Pattern 24
