The network has 3 pumps of which one pump is running at its design speed in this scenario. The other two pumps are shut down. The system has two flow control valves which are identical. The scenarios below consider the response of the control valve to one of the isolation valves closing. The isolation valve which is closing is valve 2.
PIPENET has comprehensive capabilities for building control systems including loops such as cascade control, signal selector, switches and so on. In this network the control system is built using a flow sensor, PID controller, first order transfer function, and the control valve.
