Advanced Water Distribution Network Analysis and RRTC devices

wdnet xlThe  course will provide key concepts and methodologies for WDN analysis also accounting for Remote Real Time Controlled (RRTC) devices within a comprehensive and consistent framework using the WDNetXL Analysis and RRTC modules  .

The WDNetXL  system is intended for practitioners, researchers and students to support for WDN analysis, design and management within a comprehensive and consistent framework by using MS-Excel® as data management interface.

The WDNetXL paradigm permits to easily customize existing analyses and/or develop new functionalities based on peculiar utility needs of the water utilities.

Teachers: Daniele Laucelli, Luigi Berardi, Antonietta Simone.
