Real-time and Steady-state Hydraulic Simulation

A hydraulic simulation can be made for:

  • a single point in time; or
  • an extended period of up to 70 days in duration.


During a real-time (extended period) simulation:

  • time steps forward at a user-defined interval, which can be a small as 1 minute;
  • demand from the system adjusts depending on time of day and which day (1 to 70) is being simulated;
  • operational logic controls valves and pumps;
  • autonomous devices such as pressure reducing valves, operate to match current hydraulic conditions; and
  • results are created at user-defined intervals (e.g. each 30 minutes) and at each time when a device changes operational state.
