This webinar will address the potential risks and consequences of pump failure by evaluating pump operation and transient analysis. You will be guided through a live demonstration using the SURGE modelling software to simulate the transient response of irrigation systems and water supply distribution networks to pump operation. Understanding how to deal with dangerous transient pressures and implement mitigation techniques is critical for water authorities worldwide to ensure a safe water supply and prevent costly damage.
