      Cycling Pumps in InfoWorks ICM and InfoWorks CS

      Pumps are routinely cycled between duty and standby.  This can be modeled by using an Real Time Control (RTC) object.

      In the example below the pumps are modeled for simplicity as Fixed Pumps.  They have the same ON and OFF settings, and the same discharge.

      The RTC uses the RANGE type pumpstate (which displays the idle time of the pump as a value less than 0 and the running time as a value greater than zero).  By using a variable (DELTA_IDLE) to calculate the difference we can determine which pump needs to operate next.

      A logic determines if the ON criteria is met, as well as checking whether this pump is the one scheduled to run.

        Nifty Script for creating a Unique ID in the Open Data Import Setting

        Have you ever gone to import a data set and realized that the Unique ID is not unique – or worse there isn’t one ?

        This nifty little script will simply apply a numeric ID that will increment (act as the row number for the dataset).  In the example below we are using it for polygons but could be adapted to any model object.

        class Importer
            @@polygon_id = 1

           def Importer.OnEndRecordPolygon(obj)
              obj[‘polygon_id’] = @@polygon_id

              @@polygon_id += 1
           end
        end

            Leveraging your CCTV data in the InfoMaster Decision Tree (Rehab Planning)

            Once CCTV data (pipe, manhole, or lateral inspections) have been imported into InfoMaster and run through our CCTV Analysis Wizard, all of the defect information and scored values are associate to the assets and may be used in InfoMaster analysis tools. Users can use this information in the:

            1. Reliability Analysis tools (thus specifying defects or scores that are indicative of pipe failure)
            2. Risk Analysis tools (for example, defining a Likelihood of Failure based n Quick rating scores)
            3. Rehab Planning (Decision Tree, the topic of this blog entry)

            There are many ways to use the CCTV data in your Rehab Logic

            DT

            To look at specific Defects and/or their modifiers, simply select the “Count of Defects” and use the Query builder to help you build and validate your statement

            Query

            Whamo, you have just asked the program to identify any pipe that has at least one Infiltration Dripper (as an example), from there you can assign any specific or custom Rehab Action to assign to the pipe. Users can build multi-parameter logic statements as well.

              Create smaller InfoWorks ICM transportable databases by leaving your commit history behind

              Sometimes when copying an InfoWorks ICM model into a transportable database the result is a huge file.  There are number of reasons why this may happen but one of the most common is the inclusion of the entire commit history in the transportable database.

              Imagine you have an empty network and you create a mesh of 10,000 elements.  You now have 10,000 elements in your committed model.

              Make a change to the mesh zone shape and remesh – you still have 10,000 elements – but each of these elements is a different element from the previous version of the model – so in your network history you have the original 10,000 elements plus the new 10,000 mesh elements.  This is not a problem until you create a transportable database when the commit history is copied with the model.

              Luckily there is a solution.

                InfoWorks WS – Using SQL to compare two simulations

                Click to Download Paper – Comparison of Two Simulations Using SQL

                 

                The SQL tool in InfoWorks can be very powerful in quickly comparing two simulations. In the attached paper a method is described to produce a grid and select links with the estimate of the links that may have a discoloration risk compared to a base simulation. The criteria that is used in this example is an example only and engineering judgement is required to set the limits relevant for your network and organisational standards.

                    How to Use Trace Upstream, Domain Manager and Facility Manager in InfoSewer to Find the CE

                    InfoSewer and H2OMAP Sewer do not have table of node continuity errors only an overall continuity error (CE) balance.  If you have a continuity error then you can use the process of divide and conquer to find the location of the continuity error.  Start at the Outlets and using the Trace Upstream command, Domain Manager and Facility Manager take out whole sections of the network until you isolate the section of the network with the continuity error  (Figure 1 and Figure 2).
