View Full Version : Infoworks WS, Valve %Open vs Flow

February 10, 2016, 02:08 PM
I created a slow open/close valve using UPC similar to this example (http://blog.innovyze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/UPC-Examples.pdf).

Strangely, the flow doesn't ramp up as the valve opens (see image below). Why is this happening?

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Craig,

I forwarded on your questions to other members of our support team more knowledgeable in InfoWorks WS and here are their initial thoughts on this issue.

Flow is determined by the network conditions around the valve.
Unless the valve is in a gravity system feeding a reservoir changing its opening will not necessarily increase the flow.

If you need further support and cannot find the cause of the problem, please send a copy of your network to the Support inbox (support@innovyze.com ) and we can investigate further.

Thank you.
