Abstract

The development of many intelligent technologies, such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, has brought new opportunities for water industry intelligence. Based on intelligent pressure regulation technology, this paper built an intelligent management platform, designed an intelligent pressure-regulating device, and combined both to form an intelligent pressure-regulating vehicle (IPRV). The IPRV has the functions of developing a pressure-regulating scheme, equipment selection, pressure reduction potential analysis, etc. It can bring convenience to the field test of the water supply network. In the field test, an intelligent pressure-regulating device was used to obtain the network data in the pilot site called S-cell. After utilizing the intelligent management platform to analyze the measured data, the water usage pattern and pressure reduction potential of the S-cell were obtained, and an optimal pressure-regulating strategy was formulated. The water pressure at the critical node always met the water demand at the critical node during the field test. In addition, no complaints were received from other users. The results show that the IPRV is not only convenient for utility managers to make decisions on building pressure-reducing stations but also meets user needs, realizing a win–win situation for both users and companies
