Control Group - You have the ability to define the control groups to be used in the optimization analysis. Each control group is identified as having one or more pumps, valves and pipes. In addition, you can modify any group previously identified, set the number of acceptable switches, start time, optimization duration, and switching interval for each group. Each pump, valve and pipe can belong to only one control group within a single data field column (e.g., Pump ID 10 cannot belong to both Pump Group 1 and Pump Group 2). You can create as many data field columns as desired to evaluate different grouping options (various operational improvement alternatives). Only pumps, valves and pipes that are candidate for optimization need to be associated with a group ID. Pumps, valves and pipes that do not belong to a particular group will remain unaffected (their operating status unchanged) by the optimization process. The Scheduler will determine a single combination of control rules (start and stop times) for all pumps, valves, and pipes within any particular group. If distinct control rules are desired for specific pumps, valves, and pipes, then these components must be placed in separate groups.
