Analysis of surge effects caused by inlet altitude valves operation under different demands along a water main system
Author : V. Diniz1 , P. Souza2 and E. Luvizotto Junior1
This paper presents a case study of a water main system located at Jundiaí, SP, Brazil that supplies a group of four tanks. The water main supplies five neighborhoods. The system has nine pipes and ten nodes. The four tanks work simultaneously and all of them have altitude valves installed on their inlets. The tanks work under different water demands and pressures and are located on different places (nodes). Software was developed to study the undesirable hydraulic transients produced on the water main due to wrong altitude valve settings on the four tank inlets and to yield a solution to control the hydraulic transients.
