New Version Features Turbidity Analysis, Multiple Usability Enhancements and Extended Optimization Capabilities
Innovyze, a leading global innovator of business analytics software and technologies for smart wet infrastructure, recently announced the release of InfoWorks WS V15.5, enhanced with new benefits and valuable modeling capabilities that make it easier for users to arrive at fast, accurate solutions and enhance their productivity.
Whether configured as a component of a corporate modeling solution or a stand-alone desktop application,InfoWorks WS combines a fast relational database, powerful hydraulic computational engine and comprehensive spatial analysis tools to create a single, flexible smart water network modeling application that excels in both steady-state and extended period dynamic simulations.
InfoWorks WS uses an enhanced version of the WesNet engine, renowned for its speed with large networks and ability to cope with complex networks. A full range of simulation capabilities is standard, including dynamic water quality and sediment modeling, fire flow assessment, pipe criticality analysis, demand area and leakage analysis, energy use and cost calculations, and auto-calibration of networks. User Programmable Control (UPC) allows modelers to optimize water network operating regimes by changing state of control elements based on the status of sensors.
The latest version includes the capability to perform comprehensive turbidity analysis as part of a water quality simulation, a powerful tool for predicting discoloration events. The results from the analysis can be used to design effective flushing strategies aimed at improving water quality in the network and reducing customer complaints.
InfoWorks WS V15.5 also adds a new multiple variable speed pump option that will cause the pump station to regulate all identical and available variable speed pumps in concert by varying their speed together to achieve a target. Options have also been added to the Esri ArcMap format export, and several new keyboard shortcuts increase the usability of the solution.
BalanceNet for InfoWorks WS V15.5 additional enhancements include the use of Price of Water data when performing optimization runs, a new, more flexible flow volume constraints grid, the ability to optimize variable speed pumps, and support for maximum power demand rates.
