IWLive is a real time forecasting tool for water distribution systems. This course is aimed at InfoWorks WS or InfoWater users who wish to extend their system into a real time environment. The attendees will take an existing water distribution model within Infoworks WS and associate it with telemetry data. Alerts and warnings will be added before an operational system is deployed.
This is a 2-day computer hands-on training course.
Participants are guided through a series of practicals by computer hands-on training interspersed with Powerpoint presentations.
A basic understanding of computers and InfoWorks WS or InfoWater is required. Some familiarity with GIS or Microsoft Office programs would be advantageous although not essential.
- IWLive Application and Software
An introduction to the core IWLive functionality and basic terminology. What is required migrating a model into IWLive.
- Linking to Telemetry Data
The attendee will learn how to make connections from real time data to the network. This will include the theory of database connections involving SQL and Oracle and practical work.
- Additional Data Preparation for the Baseline Object.
Alerts allow for ICMLive users to be warned of adverse behaviour. The course covers how alerts can be included in a system and how these will be disseminated to operators. The course covers simple alerts only but the theory of more complex alerts is also covered.
Alerts allow for IWLive users to be warned of unusual events. The course covers how alerts can be included in a system and how these will be disseminated to operators.
Once alerts and telemetry are in the system the course covers the basic elements of a deployment. This includes export functions, housekeeping and archiving. The attendee will be taught how to make a system 'live' and how to bring it offline in order to make changes.
The operational interface for the control room application is much simpler than the offline tool where the system is configured. The attendee will learn how to use this application and what can and can't be done. The course covers manual simulations, 'what-if' scenarios and working with automatic forecasts.
Implementing an IWLive system has a significant IT involvement. The course includes discussion of this involvement and tips and tricks for making deployments efficient.
The final part of the course covers the sorts of things that can go wrong in a live system and how these can be resolved. Advice on system logs is also given.
