Abstract

A three-year research project about water grid technology (“WATERGRID research project”) is led by ARIN – the company managing water distribution in the city of Naples – in a partnership with IBM and the University of Naples. Objectives of the project's initial phase include designing and prototyping a subsystem for grid modelling, optimization and simulation (GMOS). The GMOS subsystem implements state-of-the-art software kernels for the simulation of water distribution networks, including modules for the calibration of the hydraulic model and for an optimal partitioning of the grid. This paper illustrates general findings in applying model-driven software engineering to the architecture and design of the GMOS subsystem which largely abstract from the specific nature of the distribution grid as they could equally apply to the modelling, optimization and simulation of gas and electricity distribution networks.
