The project aims at developping a generic product that will allow the integration of the various components necessary for the Real-Time (RT) management of the urban water cycle.
A few tasks will be devoted to adapt/extend the function of few existing components (models, optimisation module) to demonstrate the applicability of the product in various pilote sites illustrating various parts of the urban water cycle :
- Barcelona, Spain : Optimised & Management of Urban drainage and downstream WWTP
- Lyonnaise des Eaux, France : Monitoring of Network on both hydraulics and water quality.
- Baerum Water, Norway : Optimised Management of Drinking Water Supply (DWS), ), i.e. treatment and distribution
- KWR Pilot : Test of new sensor on VITENS drinking water network. The Following will be developped in OPRISMA in the 4 different levels of an integrated Real-Time Management System (see the Project Outline). Open integrated software
- Development of a generic product that can possibly be used for the development of application for RTMS of the urban cycle using existing components Optimal Management
- Real-time optimal control applications to compute control strategies for the operation of drinking water treatment, transport and distribution networks, of urban drainage networks and its coordination with WWTP management.
- Real-time monitoring software in drinking water treatment/transport/dsitribution networks to detect quality problems; in urban drainage to monitor and predict in real time flooding and polluting-discharge risks in a WWTP. Monitoring and modelling
- Adaptation of the drainage modelling component for RT application
- Innovative, system-independent, real time forecast system tailored for sewer system monitoring and modelling Monitoring hardware devices
- Test of four new sensor in the Drinking Water Area -Investigating energy harvesting for sensors
- Adaptation of telecom device capabability to allow the sensors interaction to the smart metering (radio) infrastructure
- Investigating the added value of up to four new sensor systems for water quality determination.
