PRODUCT

WaterNet Advisor


Want to control your water network anytime, anywhere? Take this one-hour self-paced course for step-by-step instructions on how to monitor and adjust hydraulic conditions online using WaterNet Advisor. Learn how to import a water distribution model into the application, run various hydraulic simulations, edit the data and view the results.

First, we’ll create a new project in WaterNet Advisor and register a hydraulic model. Next, we’ll run a hydraulic simulation and look at the results. We’ll then run a fire flow simulation and explore the various model editing options. You’ll then learn how to simulate water age, source tracing, contaminant events, shutdown planning and pipe criticality. Lastly, you’ll get a preview of some additional features in WaterNet Advisor including how to display GIS data such as hydrants and valves, view demand allocation data like consumption points, visualise calibration data and more.

About WaterNet Advisor

WaterNet Advisor is a Cloud application designed to improve efficiency in the day-to-day operations, management and reporting of both water distribution and collection system networks by providing easy, web-based access to hydraulic conditions. It’s compatible with any EPANET, SWMM or MIKE+ model including water distribution, stormwater and collection systems plus, no special expertise is required

IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR ME?

Are you a consultant, engineer, or a utility operator with some basic understanding of water supply and water distribution?  Are you interested in getting a kick-start in hydraulic modelling and wish to become acquainted with tools available in WaterNet Advisor? If yes, you can benefit from this free, self-paced course.

WHAT ARE MY EXPECTED OUTCOMES?

Upon completion of the course, you will be able to start using WaterNet Advisor to obtain instant answers to hydraulic conditions of water distribution systems.

LEARNING METHODOLOGY

Each of the 10 modules includes a video illustrating the steps to complete a specific assignment. It will take you around one hour to complete the entire course at a time and location that best fits your needs.
