Sensors for smart water grids

Sensors for smart water grids

Expression of Interest description

The use of common water system for the serve of technical and drinkable water economic expenses can go down on 45… 70% at the concordance of the modes of delivery and consumption of technical and drinkable water. The water pollution by solid and liquid impurities leads to a change in its optical and dielectric properties. This changes the transparency, which can be controlled in the optical range at several wavelengths. Using of multiple frequency bands allow to evaluate the transparency of water in these bands, as well as to estimate the size of present in water solid micro impurities with the help of transparency. The use of method of capillary-waveguide resonance allows to detect the presence of micro impurities in the water, and to assess its purity. Thus in the range of 60 .. 68 GHz with this method may detect impurities with boundary concentrations of 0.1%. Problems to be solved in the project:Development of sensors for water quality control to ensure the continuity of control in real time
• Integration of developed sensors into smart water meters.
• Development of software tools for optimization of water resources control and supply of water to each customer with determine quality.
• Minimization of the costs for providing consumers with drinking and industrial water.
• Fullest through phased water use from the moment of the first customers to the consumer and subsequent disposal or return of water to clean up and re-use.
