Part 1: Darwin Calibrator, Designer, and Scheduler 

Are you spending time on water distribution network modeling tasks that you wish could be automated or simplified?

Whether you are an existing user of OpenFlows WaterGEMS or currently using alternative solutions, in this two-part webinar series we will demonstrate how you can save time on trivial modeling tasks and inefficiencies by utilizing some of WaterGEMS’ built-in modules.

WaterGEMS is a comprehensive decision-support tool for the planning, design, analysis, and operations of water distribution networks. What makes WaterGEMS stand out from other solutions are its advanced built-in modules which use patented optimization technology and powerful genetic algorithms.

These modules have helped some of the largest consultants and water utilities around the world save time and money, and we would like you to reap the same benefits and enhance your modeling workflows, project delivery, or operational performance of your water distribution networks.
In the first part of this series on WaterGEMS we will guide you through:
  • An Introduction to Virtuosity and Practitioner Licenses
  • How to get started
  • Darwin Calibrator – Automated calibration and leakage localization
  • Darwin Designer – Optimization of capital improvement plans (new pipe layouts or pipe rehabilitation)
  • Darwin Scheduler – Optimize pump operations
  • Q&A
