Theoretical Model Used in Monitoring the Losses from Water Networks Due to Water Control Measurement Batteries

Open access


According to the IWA norms, the water loss category includes also the apparent loss water due to measurement errors of the water meters used at the connections. This paper presents the experimental results obtained during two years of registrations in TARGOVISTE’s Water Company network. A program for verifying the water meters used for connections has been implemented according to a statistical distribution, depending on the number of appliances and their dimensions. Using a theoretical simulation model, calibrated on the basis of the actual reference flows measured on the metrology approved measuring stand, a procedure was developed to assess the level of deviations in the fully metered water distribution network. Depending on the values of deviations and flows actually recorded by the meters in the distribution network, it was possible to estimate the percentage of the losses from the actually used water meters.
