Burst detection and location in water distribution networks

Misiunas, D.; Lambert, M.; Simpson, A. and Olsson, Gustaf LU (2005) In Water Science and Technology: Water Supply 5(3-4). p.71-80
Abstract
An algorithm for the detection and location of sudden bursts in water

distribution networks combining both continuous monitoring of pressure and hydraulic

transient computation is presented. The approach is designed for medium and large bursts

that are the result of the sudden rupture of the pipe wall or other physical element in the

network and are accompanied by the transient pressure wave that propagates throughout

the network. The burst-induced transient wave arrival times and magnitudes measured at

two or more points are used to find the location of a burst. The wave arrival times and

magnitudes are detected using the modified cumulative sum (CUSUM) change detection... (More)
