  • Publication number: 20200319057
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for acquiring the water leakage amount of a leakage area in a water distribution system. In the method, a hydraulic model is coupled with monitored data, and the water leakage amounts of different areas in the water distribution system are obtained through inversion by optimizing the spatial distribution of water leakage amounts. In addition to the coupling of the hydraulic model with the monitored data, virtual sectorization and pipe leakage risk assessment are used. By using a minimum difference between a simulated value and a monitored value at a pressure measurement point as a target, the water leakage amounts of different areas in the water distribution system are calculated by an optimization algorithm. Compared with the prior art, the present invention actualizes the effective identification of leakage areas in a water distribution system with a high leakage rate (i.e., with many leakage points).
