Dataset is the key component of scenarios, and used to represent any difference such as pipe diameter, tank size, and pump curve.


To change data sets for a scenario, open the Scenario Explorer and select the Dataset tab.

Data Sets

  • Demand Set – Modeling data associated with junction nodes.  Demand sets are used to save modeling data on junction node demands and demand pattern identifiers and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  The only attributes stored in a demand set are the baseline demands and the associative pattern.  The Auto-Demand Reset preference governs how demands are assigned when activating demand sets.

  • Tank Set – Modeling data associated with storage nodes.  Tank sets are used to save modeling data on storage nodes and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  Tank sets contain modeling information including type of storage node (tank, fixed-grade reservoir, variable head reservoir, and variable-area tank) and related storage node characteristic data such as bottom elevation, initial water level, tank dimensions including diameter, minimum and maximum levels, minimum volume, curves defining variable area tanks, and patterns defining grade in variable-head reservoirs.

  • Pipe Set – Modeling data associated with pipes.  Pipe sets are used to save modeling data on pipes and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  Pipe sets contain modeling information including pipe diameters, lengths, roughness coefficients, minor loss coefficients, and presence or absence of check valves and flow totalizers.

  • Pump Set – Modeling data associated with pumps.  Pump sets are used to save modeling data on pumps and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  Pump sets contain modeling information including pump curve type and pump curve parameters.

  • Valve Set – Modeling data associated with control valves.  Valve sets are used to save modeling data on control valves and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  Valve sets contain modeling information including valve type and related valve characteristic data such as pressure setting for PRVs, flow setting for FCVs, tank grades for float valves, etc.

  • Control Set – Initial link status (open, closed, setting) and any operational control rules defined at the time the control set was created.  Controls apply to links, pumps, and valves.

  • Energy Set – Energy data for pumps including pump efficiency, energy charging rate patterns, and demand charge patterns.

  • Fireflow Set – Fireflow demands for junction nodes.

  • Logic Set – Logical controls used for rule based logic controls.  Logical controls are created and maintained with the Rule-Based Control command (See InfoWater Pro Model Explorer->Command Center ->Edit Menu and select Rule-Based Control).  Use the Edit Logic Set to store logical controls in a logic set and to maintain those logic sets.

  • Quality Set – Water quality modeling parameters including quality source nodes, initial water quality at junction and storage nodes, and reaction rate coefficients for pipes and tanks.  Water quality parameters are maintained with the Create, Edit, or Edit Group commands.  Use the Edit Quality Set command to create and manage quality sets.

  • Reservoir Set - Modeling data associated with Reservoirs.  Reservoir sets are used to save modeling data on reservoirs and retrieve those data as part of a scenario.  Reservoir sets contain modeling information including type of storage node (fixed-grade reservoir or variable head reservoir) and related storage node characteristic data such as head and patterns defining grade in variable-head reservoirs.

  • Curve Set - All Curves data in the InfoWater Pro project.

  • Pattern Set - All pattern data in the InfoWater Pro project.

  • SCADA Set - All the SCADA information for the InfoWater Pro project.

Edit Active Scenario

The Active Scenario dialog box allows the user to select any of the scenarios created in an InfoWater project and make it active.  Once a scenario is made active, each of the three facets that comprise a scenario (facility sets, data sets, simulation sets) also become active.

Active Scenario

The Active Scenario shows you which scenario is currently active

Inheritance Path

The Inheritance Path shows which parent this scenario is dependent upon.

Data Sets

The Data Sets also show which data sets are currently being assigned to this particular scenario.  Here, the user can change the Data Sets of the active scenario by doubling-clicking on the desired data set.  A dialog box will appear showing all of the data sets available to the user.
