Pressure Dependent Analysis(PDA)

Hi everyone
In EPANET-MATLAB toolkit v2.2 when we want to model PDA, just we can set a specific minimum pressure and a required pressure for all District Metered Areas (DMAs) in networks,but if I want to determine different minimum and required pressured for each DMA, what should I do?

Maybe you can create a new input file for each DMA…

Hi dear @Mariosmsk
If I want to model a large-scaled network with some DMAs, I have to model the whole network as an integrated network including DMAS, because the minimum and required pressure of each DMA influence on the other DMAs. Is there any method to model different minimum and required pressures for each DMA in a network?

Hi,
I suggest the write pressure driven program as a separate function based on Wagner paper. It’s not very difficult.

Hi dear @alireza2032
I want to model this procedure in EPANET-MATLAB toolkit. Do you know any method to solve the problem?
