Effective usage is the ultimate goal of managing the network infrastructure in a heating or water supply organization. Using GIS systems for building the network model and calculation programs for setting the network parameters are necessary for achieving this goal. SymPatia program detects flows and pressure loss in the heating and water supply network with charge (flow) set value for network end nodes.
- symmetric and asymmetric networks (concerning the symmetry between the power supply and return in heating networks),
- networks that include many cooperating sources,
- networks with any number of cycles,
- networks with lifting devices or devices reducing the pressure in the network
As a result, the program provides flow and pressure loss values in the network edges and pressure values in the network nodes.
The SymPatia program works in conjunction with DH.GIS system based on the Smallworld platform. SymPatia can also be adjusted to work with another GIS system. Moreover, the calculation engine can run by itself, using data (network projection) prepared by the user.
