Export Curve Data to Excel (CSV). Export head-flow data from pump curves to an Excel file.
Surge System Head Curves. Create system head curves within Surge. Formally a KYPipe-only feature.
Rated/Single-Point Curves. Create, view and export curves for rated pumps and single point pumps.
Series or Parallel Pump Curves Graph. Curves for 2-9 pumps in series or parallel are displayed instead of 6-9.
This more comprehensive import tool makes it easier to create a TranSurge model from an Excel file. Improvements include changes to pump station import, more imported elements, and a quick chart that can be used for air valve placement. More…
Node Glyphs (Limited Control in Classic). Allows the user to create Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (PIDs) using a menu of customizable symbols, called glyphs to differentiate them from the normal model symbols. Glyphs can be rotated and their size can be changed. Includes both 2-D and 3-D glyphs.
3D Pipes. Create 3-D pipes of different widths and styles to match optional 3-D glyphs when building a Piping and Instrumentation Diagram.
Converts pipes to a different coordinate system while keeping the current latitude and longitude so the pipes will appear at the same geographical location.
Profile View. Allows the system to be seen in a side view for any defined profile. System data and results are still accessible but editing is not allowed. Fast switching between plan and profile view.
Calculates the difference between two parameters and creates node emphasis and/or contours based on these values.
Copy Node Changes to Legend. Reports all node changes within the legend in the Map Area.
Displays all Four Results for Nodes and Pipes in Info Windows. Display flow, head, pressure and hydraulic grade line simultaneously for two different cases or times.
Increased number of Saved Views. Users can now save up to 20 views instead of 7.
Loss-Loss/1000 Option for Pipe Emphasis and Labels. Use head loss and head loss per thousand feet (or meters) to label and emphasize pipes.
Multiline Pipe Labels (KYnetic). Displays one label item per line instead of all on one line.
Zoom Lock (KYnetic). Right Click Zoom Windows or Ctrl-Shift-W.
The Pressure Sensitive Demands feature adjusts the flow rate at demand nodes until specified system pressures are met.
Similar to saved views, this feature allows users to load, save and compare results within a modeling file – no need to create new files to see the effect of changes.
Emphasize isolation zones using contours or pipe colors. View a report showing the demand per zone and a histogram denoting percentage by zone or absolute flow values.
Recent Folder Option in the File Open/Close Menu. Search for model files in recently-used folders without having to navigate to them.
Sort Items Descending in Node Group Select (KYnetic). Sort nodes in descending order by characteristics such as elevation, hydraulic grade, demand, etc.
Change the thickness of pipes to emphasize hydraulic variables such as pipe diameter, roughness, flow, etc.
Export Profile to Excel. Exports node name, elevation, distance, HGL, pressure, min HGL and max HGL. Click on the Print Button within the Animated Profile Menu to access this feature.
Display Case C. Formerly the pressure results from two different times or cases, Cases A and B, could be plotted within the graph of the Animated Profile; now a third option, Case C, can be plotted as well.
Cavitation Emphasis. Cavitation within the system can now be shown on the HGL line within the Animated Profile using a user-defined color.
Show Axis Lines. Users can now add solid lines to show the x- and y-axes.
Display X-Coordinate. This feature displays the actual x-coordinate of each node used in the layout of the system: useful for systems that are on a different scale or do not have the same origin as the profile.
Simple Mode. Turn off the node/device symbols along the animated profile to better see the system elevations.
Draw Box Around Graph. Add a box outlining the graph.
Side Discharge Orifice Number Increased – the allowable number of SDO surge protection devices has been increased from 300 to 600.
This tool automatically calculates inertia based on the pump efficiency, speed ratio, rated speed, rated head, and rated flow. It also determines a best-fit Suter Curve File Number.
This function is available from the System Data Menu. It allows the user to customize the Analysis Report or to create custom tables.
