Administration page used to import pump information into WaterSight.
It is possible to import pump information through a configuration Excel file (template file available for download in the Digital Twin Setup page) or to manually add a pump and its characteristics. After uploading pump 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 (table row) the fields available for editing will appear below the pump configuration table.
There are four optional curves that can be defined for pumps to establish relationships used for graphing and analysis.
Curve definitions must follow these rules:
If points are entered out of order, they will be sorted by flow (or speed in the case of the Speed Efficiency Curve).
Note: Minimum required fields are marked with an asterisk.
The flow rate for the design operating point chosen when sizing the pump. The design operating point might not fall directly on the manufacturer flow/head curve. The Design Point will be displayed on graphs for reference.
Best Efficiency Point. The flow rate at which the pump efficiency is highest. The Best Efficiency Point will be displayed on graphs for reference.
Best Efficiency Point. The maximum efficiency of the pump. The Best Efficiency Point will be displayed on graphs for reference.
Only applicable for pumps with variable frequency drives. The value that the Pump Speed Signal will return when the Variable Frequency Drive is operating at full speed.
If speed is measured in percent, this will be 100. If speed is measured as a decimal between 0 and 1, this will be 1. If speed is measured in frequency, this may be 60 Hz or similar. If speed is measured in revolutions per minute, this may be 1800 RPM or similar.
Values from the Pump Speed Signal will be divided by this Full Speed Value to be converted into a percentage.
Indicates whether a signal for the suction conditions of the pump 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 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.
Indicates whether a signal for the flow rate of the pump have been specified.
If no signal is provided, any graphs graphs and calculations that depend on flow rates will not be displayed.
Indicates whether a signal for the pump power has been specified.
If no signal is provided and a Power Curve is available, the power will be estimated for each timestep based on the flow and head.
Indicates whether a signal for the pump status has been specified. If available, this will be used to filter analytical results to when the specified pump is active.
The colored points in the table indicate the following:
It is possible to insert tags (or user defined groups) for each pump, by directly filling the Tags column in the Pumps Configuration Template or by directly clicking in a row in the Pumps table, then clicking Edit and then filling the Tags section below the table.
Once tags are defined, those will be available in the Pump Overview page, so that is easier to search and find specific pumps of interest. Below some examples of groups that may be relevant:
