It comes in handy for engineers and water utilities, providing them with a comprehensive tool for analyzing hydraulic systems and designing simple to complex piping networks.
Its capabilities extend to tracking the flow of water in each pipe and measuring the pressure in each node, monitoring the water height in tanks and calculating its chemical concentration. The user interface is mainly occupied by the network editor, enabling you to view and manage elements, add new ones, create connections and edit the properties of each item.
Networks consist of pipes, junctions, valves shut down, flow control or pressure regulating ones , pumps and reservoirs for storage. EPANET can handle systems of any size and comes with an extended set of features for network analysis, data reporting and visualization. It can generate color-coded network maps, plots and time series graphs, display data in a structured table or compute the energy usage, the friction head loss, pumping energy and costs.
Furthermore, it allows the control of network components using complex rules. The application is capable of generating simple project summary reports, as well as more complex reports regarding energy consumption, calibration, reactions and more. The water quality analyzer enables you to keep an eye on the age of water throughout the network, track the water flow, model reactions in the pipe wall, determine the global reaction rate coefficient.
The application provides advanced map appearance customization options, with possibilities to change element colors, their size, adding labels, symbols or modifying the background. EPANET finds its practical use in everyday life, helping water companies enhance the water quality and optimize their costs. It can be used for conducting consumer exposure and vulnerability reports, managing tank filling schedules and improve the overall performance of a hydraulic system.
GHydraulics integrates EPANET and QGIS
Features[ edit ] EPANET provides an integrated environment for editing network input data, running hydraulic and water quality simulations, and viewing the results in a variety of formats. EPANET provides a fully equipped and extended period of hydraulic analysis that can handle systems of any size. The package also supports the simulation of spatially and temporally varying water demand, constant or variable speed pumps, and the minor head losses for bends and fittings. The modeling provides information such as flows in pipes, pressures at junctions, propagation of a contaminant, chlorine concentration, water age, and even alternative scenario analysis. This helps to compute pumping energy and cost and then model various types of valves , including shutoffs, check pressure regulating and flow control. It rates the reactive material as is grows, tracks the percentage of flow from the given nodes.
