Leakage detection and water grid monitoring
Many municipal drinking water suppliers are struggling with the problem of high water losses, up to 20%, in their grids. The financial losses are significant. By connecting the flowmeters in the grid to the TeleControlNet server and comparing the measured data with data from the consumer side of the grid, discrepancies can be detected and reported with simple quantity difference calculations. The results are presented in hourly updated "consumption tables" indicating volumes per grid segment. Alarming within a one hour timespan minimizes water losses significantly.
