Presentation | AWWA Texas Water | April 13, 2012 | San Antonio, TX

Real Time Energy and Water Quality Management System - Designed for Success!

Peter Martin (VP, Derceto) presented a paper at Texas Water 2012 (San Antonio) on the proposed application of Aquadapt to the city of El Paso. This very large water distribution system supplies 750,000 people including Fort Bliss and relies on a combination of 119 wells, two conventional river fed Water Treatment Plants sourcing water from the Rio Grande and two desalination plants using brackish ground water as their source. Energy cost savings of up to $790,000 per year are predicted, with the system due to go live before the end of 2012.

Optimizing Holistically to Maximize Savings

Simon Bunn (CTO, Derceto) presented a paper at AWWA ACE 2010 on the benefits of using a global holistic optimizer to maximize savings in distributing treated water. Examples of changes to energy tariffs, restrictions on use of water sources and the introduction of real-time energy pricing were used to demonstrate how the Aquadapt software automatically seeks lowest cost by switching from chasing low tariff periods to targeting maximum energy efficiency to retain savings in a changing environment.

The Impact of Pump Wear on Energy Efficiency

Simon Bunn (CTO, Derceto) presented a paper at AWWA ACE 2010 on empirical evidence gathered on the impact of pump wear on pump curves and particularly pump energy efficiency. This includes some results for variable speed pumps and a look at parallel pump operation with regard to maximizing efficiency.
