In times of growing populations, strong climate variations are affecting the predictability of the water resources. Water utilities today are under pressure to become as efficient as possible to respond to an increasing water demand, to secure the water quality and to comply with environmental regulations.
KISTERS Real-Time Operations is designed to optimise multiple objectives at a time. Conflicting constraints are resolved and goals are traded off against each other. With KISTERS Real-Time Operations you can
- Maximize revenue
- Minimize the OPEX
- Increase water supply efficiency
- Secure and improve drinking water quality
- Ensure long-term water availability
- Avoid combined sewer overflow
- Increase effective flood retention capacity
The nonlinear optimisation approach enables KISTERS Real-Time Operations to find the optimum solution for specific and complex hydraulic questions. Challenge us with your optimisation requirement!
KISTERS deploys and contributes to RTC-Tools, the open source toolbox for optimization of hydraulic systems.
Contribute to the green economy by operating your hydroelectric plants when the clouds are out and the wind lies down -- and prices are high.
All the while, stay within regulatory commitments and leverage synergies between efficient operation and ecology.
Make the most out of your existing infrastructure by operating pumps when energy is cheap. Take into account pump efficiency curves to leverage periods of low pump head.
Reduce or eliminate waste by tuning supply intake to demand. Leverage KISTERS experience in demand forecasting and make optimal use of system buffering capacity to maximize water supply efficiency.
Optimize the flow in your distribution network to reduce water age and avoid stagnation. Bottleneck analysis helps you identify problematic system points.
Leverage KISTERS long-term decision support to provide background conditions for short-term decision support systems, so that long-term objectives, such as water availability, are guaranteed.
Make smart use of your storm water tanks to provide retention capacity where it is most needed, thereby reducing CSO overflow to the environment.
Prepare for extreme events by dynamically creating retention capacity when storm events are predicted. Is it going to rain? Our software suggests how much to draw down your reservoirs and canals to make space, without compromising other operational requirements.
The KISTERS team with experts from the water management and IT industries support the entire life cycle of your water solution right from the beginning with extensive consulting: We select the readymade standard modules to build and configure the exact solution that fits your business needs. Training offers and manuals tailored to your organization, round-the-clock internet support and a telephone hotline all serve to help you with any operational issues.
