Abstract

Rapid leakage/burst detection will improve system resilience by prompt repair of damaged pipe and recovery of the service. Here we present a methodology for pipe leak/burst detection using monitoring data from a SCADA system. A control limit theory is employed to detect potential burst. A detection capability including a time to detect a random event will be analyzed as a function of meter types and numbers. From the results found here, system planners will be able to examine the tradeoff between economic cost for monitoring system construction and system resilience.
