Map automatically zoomed to the location of the event, highlighting all customers affected by the pipe break event, as well as pipes affected and valves to close.
Customers are represented with the following colors:
Pipes are represented with the following colores:
User can click in any element in the map to see the results for a specific element. Graph result will only be available if the event simulation run is Extended Period type, please see below for more information.
Using the map controls, the user can also analyze several hydraulic parameters, such as pressure, flow, velocities, etc.
Layers: Use the layers option located on the top of the map to enable or disable additional geospatial information as well as the 3D context. Any GIS information that is uploaded in WaterSight (through shapefile upload in the GIS administration page) will be here displayed.
Model Element Visibility: The user can control the elements that are shown on the map, such as:
Side-by side view:
Side-by-side view will only be available for emergency events that were created in the last 7 days. If side-by-side view option is on, it will be possible to easily compare the baseline scenario (with no event) with the event scenario. User can click in any element in the map to see the results for a specific element and compare pre and post event conditions. Graph result will only be available if the event simulation run is Extended Period type, please see below for more information.
Statistics about the simulated pipe break event:
Valves to be closed are automatically calculated and represent the nearest valves that will isolate the smallest portion of the network. Checking or unchecking a valve in the right side table (or by directly clicking with the right button of the cursor above the valve and select "Toogle Operable") will trigger a new re-compute and suggest other valves (the nearest ones) to be closed. This is useful as sometimes the nearest valves may be inoperable due to failure or other reasons. In case the user pretends specifically to define the valves or pipes that should be closed, please consider instead running a valves operation event.
Opens a dialog to run the steady state or extended period simulation with the some user defined settings.
Isolation type of run
If the user does not press the simulation button, all the results displayed are just considering the isolation of the pipe, and all customers affected are identified only based on geospatial and pipe connectivity analysis. This means that affected customers will be those that end up without any supply. In that case, above the simulate button, it will be displayed Isolation as simulation type.
Steady state run
Besides the geospatial and pipe connectivity analysis, the hydraulic model engine will also run in order to identify customers located nearby that although still have supply, may experience a significant decrease in pressure. Steady state means that the period analyzed corresponds only to the exact instant when pipe was closed, that is defined by the user. In that case, above the simulate button, it will be displayed Steady state as simulation type.
Extended period run
Besides the geospatial and pipe connectivity analysis, the hydraulic model engine will also run in order to identify customers located nearby that although still have supply, may experience a significant decrease in pressure. Extended period means that the period analyzed comprises a specific duration (and not an instant) defined by the user. In that case, above the simulate button, it will be displayed Extended Period as simulation type. There are two types of extend period runs:
Extended period run dialog
Leakage flow: pipe break flow in the units defined for the digital twin.
Leakage start time: the start of the leakage.
Isolate: by default off, allows to specify details when and how long isolation occurs within in simulation time range.
Calculation Start date: the start date for the model run
Calculation End date: the end date for the model run
