Drinking water control and distribution
Test bench for level, flow and pressure control in drinking water systems and tanks

Topic coverage:

Process measurements (Water level in the tank by ultrasounds)

Tanks (Water tank simulating a natural water reservoir, Storage tank simulating a water tower)

Variable-flow pumps (Circulator pump with Brushless motor, Compressor)

Valves (Quarter-turn manual valves, Solenoid valve for flow disturbance)

Control unit (Labview Interface, Variable speed drive)

Training activities:

Functional analysis: drinking water storage and distribution systems

Measurement principles (physical laws, sensors, transmitters..)

Variable-flow pumps

Identification of a stable open-loop and closed-loop system

Unstable OL and CL systems

Simple water level control, responding to a set point change, responding to disturbances

Integrator level control

Pressure and flow control, split-range control

Energy saving in drinking water systems management

Product advantages:

Ideal for studying process instrumentation, water level regulation, flow control and pressure regulation

Simple and complex regulation systems

System based on an actual application (Drinking water distribution with water tower)
