WaterSight - Pump Stations Configuration

Product(s): WaterSight
Version(s): 10.00.
Area: Documentation

Overview

Administration page used to import pump station information into WaterSight. Pumps are associated to a particular pump station using the Pump Configuration page.

It is possible to import pump station information through a configuration Excel file (template file available for download in the Digital Twin Setup page) or to manually add a pump station and its characteristics. After uploading pump station information, it is also possible to edit, delete or copy information, using the available buttons located above the table. 

Note: To enable the Copy, Edit, and Remove options, please select a pump first (row in the table). When clicking in a specific pump station (table row) the fields available for editing will appear below the pump station configuration table.

Pump Station Configuration Table

Note: Minimum required fields are marked with an asterisk.

Column Description
Name* Required field. Pump station display name that will appear in the software. The name should match the label of the pump station in the uploaded WaterGEMS model, if applicable.

Number of Pumps The number of pumps associated with this pump station. This number is automatically calculated.
Suction Signal

Indicates whether a signal for the suction conditions of the pump station have been specified. The suction signal may either be a pressure signal or a level signal, such as the level of a clearwell that the pump station draws from. Suction and discharge signal values will be converted to hydraulic grade and subtracted to determine the pump head at each signal timestep.

If no signal is provided, the suction pressure will be assumed to be 0 for pump head calculations.

Discharge Signal Indicates whether a signal for the discharge conditions of the pump station have been specified. The discharge signal may either be a pressure signal or a level signal, such as the level of a nearby tank downstream of the tank. Suction and discharge signal values will be converted to hydraulic grade and subtracted to determine the pump head at each signal timestep.

Flow Signal

Indicates whether a signal for the flow rate of the pump station have been specified.

If no signal is provided, any graphs graphs and calculations that depend on flow rates will not be displayed.

The colored points in the table indicate the following:
