We have completed commissioning of DMAs for our distribution network and are now looking at doing the same for our large-diameter water pipes. There is no connection to these lines.
Does anyone have any experience specific to the supply network? Did you user a linear leakage index or another formulation? Have you encountered any particular difficulties? For example, I am thinking of a problem with DMAs that consist of multiple meters (which increases uncertainty about the calculated volumes) or of a network in which the length of the DMAs might be significant. How were these issues resolved?
