Abstract

Physical leakage flow is positively correlated with water head in water supply network (WSN). Index model is applied to engineering of pressure management in which physical leakage flow is expressed as index of average head in WSN. The paper analyzed three aspects involving flow meter measurement error, water head impact, water flow instability. The result shows that the error of this model is unacceptable from the data of pressure reduction measurement with water flow. Pressure reduction test have meaningless effect on evaluating physical losses reduction unless when it was conducted, users stop consuming water.
