Basic Version – This includes the entire range of elements including new elements such as vacuum breakers, combined pump-tank elements, blowoff hydrants, etc. You can run multiple regular simulations or an Extended Period Simulation (EPS). Includes advanced pump station modeling (multiple and/or VFD pumps) with multiple pump curves and system curves. This modeling program provides all the capabilities normally required by a hydraulic pipeline design engineer.
Standard Version – This version includes all of the above plus advanced features for modeling water utilities. Powerful capabilities for fire hydrants include automatic fire flow calculations at either hydrants or junctions, flushing calculations and hydrant blowoff calculations. Water Quality Analysis is carried out seamlessly using the powerful EPANET Water Quality module. A genetic algorithm-optimized calibration is included, the first and most-tested module of its type (Note: this module is priced at $4000 by our leading competitor). Our unique Constraint capability provides the capability to directly perform many complex design and operation calculations, saving hours of analysis time. Rural water systems design using peak demand/connection curves for sizing pipes and analyzing pressures is another unique feature.
