Real-time extension to the EPANET hydraulic toolkit
Clone or download



EPANET-RTX is the real-time extension to the EPANET Hydraulic Toolkit. It provides an interoperable framework for moving data between a SCADA database, various time series analysis methods, and a hydraulic solver.

This project is being developed and maintained by a multidisciplinary team with various affiliations (members listed in alphabetical order):

  • Ernesto Arandia-Perez (developer, University of Cincinnati)
  • Sam Hatchett (lead developer, CitiLogics)
  • Robert Janke (design team, USEPA)
  • Tom Taxon (developer, Argonne National Lab)
  • Jim Uber (design team, CitiLogics / University of Cincinnati)
  • Hyoungmin Woo (developer, University of Cincinnati)

Intended Audience

The intended audience for this software can be divided roughly into two groups:

  • Programmers interested in water distribution system simulation
  • Water distribution simulation engineers interested in programming

The key here is an orientation towards folks who are comfortable with code. The RTX library is not a program per se, but a set of building blocks for constructing your own real-time simulation environment. If you've ever hacked EPANET or built a Matlab script for running hydraulic simulations, this library might be for you.
