I am modeling a water distribution network for a town. Currently the town only has one pump station (with three pumps, all designed to deliver 500 gpm each, total of 1500 gpm). The pumps are drawing water from a nearby water tower (from a different town). Can someone show me how exactly do I draw my pumps and connect it to the tank, I am a little confused as to how the configuration should look like. I know how to assign pumps curves, it is the layout that I am having trouble understanding.
Take a look at Example5.wtg which is delivered with the product. It can be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\WaterCAD\Samples. It has a pump station (2 pumps) pulling from a reservoir.
Please let me know if this does not contain the information you're looking for.
I attached a copy of my model, I just want to make sure I drew the pump and tank correctly. I was not entirely sure what I should be using for the elevation of the pumps and the elevation of the downstream junction (J-121)? thanks for the help. Also when I draw my tank, does it have to be placed in the actual location on site in terms of the water distribution network?
