  • Electronic Water Meter For Leakage Repair - Case Study

    Every year, EMS (Energy Management System) produces and markets smart electronic water meters (domestic/ bulk), wireless transmission data logger (GSM/ GPRS), and advanced AMR (Automatic Metering Reading) systems. Unlike traditional mechanical water meter, the magnet-free electronic smart water meter with class C (CNS 14866) metrological performance can maintain 12 years battery lifespan. With a ...

  • Consumption estimation with a partial automatic meter reading deployment

    Automatic water meter reading (AMR) is now the best kind of technology to supply real time information on water consumption. Complete equipment of a district metered area enables the assessment of the total consumption of a finite size population, for a time scale sometimes as short as an hour. However, its cost for generalization can generate high capital expenditures (CAPEX), unaffordable for ...

  • Smart metering use cases to increase water and energy efficiency in water supply systems

    Efficient water and energy use in water distribution systems is being limited by the lack of sufficient data about water and related energy consumption. Therefore, it is crucial to provide updated and continuous feedback information to water users. This paper describes relevant use cases to improve efficient water use and related energy consumption by water utilities and consumers through the ...

  • Sound recording to characterize outdoor tap water use events

    Obtaining disaggregated water use at the home typically involves expensive smart metering. In this study, water use events at the outdoor tap were captured using recorded sound. Outdoor taps at 10 homes were fitted with small-sized microphones and digital sound recorders. Sound files recorded over a 1-month period were used in the analysis. In the preliminary analysis, a human operator browsed ...

  • Using smart meters to identify social and technological impacts on residential water consumption

    Studies have shown that householders' perceptions of their water use are often not well matched with their actual water use. There has been less research, however, investigating whether this bias is related to specific types of end use and/or specific types of socio-demographic and socio-demographic household profiles. A high resolution smart metering study producing a detailed end use event ...

  • A new approach to improve water loss control using smart metering data

    The control of water losses is a major concern in the sustainability of urban water utilities and in promoting the efficient use of this natural resource. Recent advances in telemetry technology provide high-resolution consumption data at the consumer level, allowing for a remarkable knowledge improvement on the different water balance components. However, few studies focus on systematic ...

  • Practicability of Underwater UAV for Civil Use

    Considering the civil consumption level of underwater UAVs, underwater UAVs can be used in aquaculture monitoring, dam inspection, scientific research,and exploration, underwater photography, island tourism,and other fields to help people better realize underwater operations. Firstly, underwater UAV is more adaptable to the environment.1.The underwater visibility is much lower than that ...

  • Pimpama-Coomera dual reticulation end use study: pre-commission baseline, context and post-commission end use prediction

    The Gold Coast Water Pimpama Coomera dual reticulation schemes' recycled water supply will be online in late 2009. In an attempt to achieve better estimates on both potable and likely recycled water end uses within this region, this paper presents a predictive model that utilises a range of input parameters, including: current use in the Gold Coast and the Pimpama Coomera regions at both a bulk ...

  • Extending maintenance interval despite harsh condititons in coal mine

    Harsh conditions, that is what characterizes most coal mines' operations. The challange presented to Sidrasul Brazil by a mine in the Santa Catarina region, was pumping excess water from extraction, with a pH between 2.5 and 3.5 with moderately abbrasive coal particles ranging from 0.5 to 4 mm. The mine has a depth of 66 meters and a total extension of 600 meters. Water was being pumped from the ...
