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)
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.
