  • Real-time data in the wild

    Background The South African water resource (DWAF) monitoring network belongs to one of the well organized and managed networks world-wide. Well prepared and maintained measurement sites & stations deliver the data base for the water management in the huge territory of South Africa. One main issue of the online data availability is the data transfer from remote stations to the data ...

  • Real-time environmental monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef

    The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the largest natural feature on earth, stretching more than 2300 km along the northeast coast of Australia. It contains a diverse array of species and habitats that are threatened by environmental and human impacts. Monitoring environmental changes would give a better understanding of the health of this ecological system. It would also help shape decision-making to ...

  • Real time odour monitoring: odour abatement monitoring using electronic noses.

    The equipment implemented to reduce odour emissions is designed with effectiveness in mind. However, some operating conditions may reduce that effectiveness without an industrial site being able to detect this quickly. Processes that most of the time have low odour emissions may become, under certain weather conditions, a major nuisance source. An electronic nose system can detect odour before ...

  • Radio Solution brings real-time monitoring benefits for water supplier

    Introduction of wireless data collection and analysis improves leak detection and water supply efficiency Companies whose business is the delivery of water to consumers, do not only have a responsibility to provide high quality drinking water to both domestic and industrial users, but also to ensure that it is done so economically and reliably. The WLV association ...

  • Developing a public information and engagement portal of urban waterways with real-time monitoring and modeling

    Waterways can contribute to the beauty and livelihood of urban areas, but maintaining their hydro-ecosystem health is challenging because they are often recipients of contaminated water from stormwater runoff and other discharges. Public awareness of local waterways’ health and community impacts to these waterways is usually poor due to of lack of easily available information. To improve ...

  • Real-Time Stormwater Management Using Depth, Duration, Frequency Thresholds

    ABSTRACTThe City of Austin (City) operates a Flood Early Warning System (FEWS) to reduce public exposure to flash flood hazards. The system is operated and maintained by the Watershed Protection and Development Review Department, Watershed Engineering Division. Advanced information and warning of urban storm water flooding is achieved by the FEWS. A critical component of the system is rainfall ...

  • The CBR-PNN approach to real-time voltage security assessment of power systems

    This paper presents the Case-based Reasoning (CBR) technique, a novel approach to voltage security assessment of power system in a real-time environment. The Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN) is used for determining the solution to a new case, using the old cases from the case base of the CBR system. A feature selection technique based on the information gained has been employed to identify the ...

  • Innovative Technology Provides Real Time Flow Data Management in Indianapolis

    This paper presents the program developed by the City of Indianapolis for managing its sewer flow data and describes how it is making real-time information available to several groups that have a stake in the City’s environmental management programs. These groups include United Water, the contract operator for the City’s collection system and its two WWTPs, the Capitol Improvement Program ...

  • Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system for real-time monitoring of integrated-constructed wetlands

    Monitoring large-scale treatment wetlands is costly and time-consuming, but required by regulators. Some analytical results are available only after 5 days or even longer. Thus, adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) models were developed to predict the effluent concentrations of 5-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) and NH4-N from a full-scale integrated constructed wetland ...

  • Modelling real-time control of WWTP influent flow under data scarcity

    In order to comply with effluent standards, wastewater operators need to avoid hydraulic overloading of the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), as this can result in the washout of activated sludge from secondary settling tanks. Hydraulic overloading can occur in a systematic way, for instance when sewer network connections are extended without increasing the WWTP's capacity accordingly. This ...

  • A real-life test bed for multi-agent monitoring of road network performance

    This paper describes an approach to road network monitoring. The approach has the following main components: a multi-agent hierarchical monitoring system in which the agents are network elements such as crossings, road segments and routes, software engineering techniques to handle legacy sensors and to homogenise their heterogeneous data streams, distributed Kalman filtering to reduce sensor ...

  • Thames Water uses FloodWorks to pilot real-time simulation and system optimization

    Thames Water is using Innovyze’s powerful real-time modelling system, FloodWorks to obtain a better understanding of the performance of assets and the costs of routine maintenance and renewal. With ongoing pressure on capital investment programmes these represent critical issues for every utility and service provider. By using historic and forecast data from different sources to drive ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...

  • ANN based real time incipient fault detection and protection system for induction motor

    Artificial neural network (ANN) has its unique advantage in the area of incipient faults detection. This article presents an ANN based real time fault detection and protection system for two types of incipient faults viz. inter-turn insulation failure and bearing wear in single-phase induction motor. The ANN fault detection (ANNFD) program is developed in C++ and implemented using a PC based DSP ...

  • Wireless Real-Time Soil Data from Stevens Hydra Probe Soil Sensors Used In Contaminated Soil Cleanup Operation

    Up until the early 1970s when The US Congress passed The Clean Water Act, industrial chemicals and petroleum products were routinely dumped onto the ground or poured down wells. In those days, few people understood groundwater hydrology, and disposing of chemical waste underground seemed like a safe and easy solution. Depending on the chemistry, underground pollution can linger for centuries, ...

  • Algorithmic network monitoring for a modern water utility: a case study in Jerusalem
