Upcoming Feature Article on Control System Modelling

The upcoming November 2013 issue of the AWA Water Journal will include a feature article by Eelko van der Vaart from One Stone Consulting and Faris Hernich from Water Corporation on the value of control system modelling from early design through to commissioning.


In the article Eelko and Faris describe the system modelling approach used in the design and commissioning of a control system for Ravenswood Pump Station. The control system is a state-of-the-art system that allows a remote operator in the Water Corporation’s Operations Centre to manage water transfers to Perth in the most efficient way. The control system automatically adjusts the speed of the pumps when system conditions change, to maintain the desired transfer rates.

If you are interested to learn more about the application and modelling of control systems in water transfer systems, please keep an eye out for the November 2013 issue of the Water Journal. Alternatively you can give us a call on 1300 840 192 for an informal discussion.
