Returns the pattern value at a specific time

Parameters

time (int) – Time in seconds

class wntr.network.elements.TimeSeries(model, base, pattern_name=None, category=None)[source]

Bases: object

Time series class.

A TimeSeries object contains a base value, Pattern object, and category. The object can be used to store changes in junction demand, source injection, pricing, pump speed, and reservoir head. The class provides methods to calculate values using the base value and a multiplier pattern.

Constructor

Parameters
  • base (number) – A number that represents the baseline value.

  • pattern_registry (PatternRegistry) – The pattern registry for looking up patterns

  • pattern (str, optional) – If None, then the value will be constant. Otherwise, the Pattern will be used. (default = None)

  • category (string, optional) – A category, description, or other name that is useful to the user (default = None).

Raises

ValueError – If base or pattern are invalid types

property base_value

Returns the baseline value.

property pattern

Returns the Pattern object.

property pattern_name

Returns the name of the pattern.

property category

Returns the category.

at(time)[source]

Returns the value at a specific time.

Parameters

time (int) – Time in seconds

to_dict()[source]

Dictionary representation of the time series

class wntr.network.elements.Demands(patterns, *args)[source]

Bases: collections.abc.MutableSequence

Demands class.

The Demands object is used to store multiple demands per junction in a list. The class includes specialized demand-specific calls and type checking.

A demand list is a list of demands and can be used with all normal list- like commands.

The demand list does not have any attributes, but can be created by passing in demand objects or demand tuples as (base_demand, pattern, category_name)

to_ts(obj)[source]

Time series representation of demands

insert(index, obj)[source]

S.insert(index, object) - insert object before index

append(obj)[source]

S.append(object) - append object to the end

extend(iterable)[source]

S.extend(iterable) - extend list by appending elements from the iterable

clear()[source]

S.clear() - remove all entries

at(time, category=None, multiplier=1)[source]

Return the total demand at a given time.

count(value) integer -- return number of occurrences of value
index(value[, start[, stop]]) integer -- return first index of value.

Raises ValueError if the value is not present.

Supporting start and stop arguments is optional, but recommended.

pop([index]) item -- remove and return item at index (default last).

Raise IndexError if list is empty or index is out of range.

remove(value)

S.remove(value) – remove first occurrence of value. Raise ValueError if the value is not present.

reverse()

S.reverse() – reverse IN PLACE

remove_category(category)[source]

Remove all demands from a specific category

base_demand_list(category=None)[source]

Returns a list of the base demands, optionally of a single category.

pattern_list(category=None)[source]

Returns a list of the patterns, optionally of a single category.

category_list()[source]

Returns a list of all the pattern categories.

class wntr.network.elements.Curve(name, curve_type=None, points=[], original_units=None, current_units='SI', options=None)[source]

Bases: object

Curve base class.

Constructor

This class is intended to be instantiated through the add_curve method.

Parameters
  • name (str) – Name of the curve.

  • curve_type (str) – The type of curve: None (unspecified), HEAD, HEADLOSS, VOLUME or EFFICIENCY

  • points (list) – The points in the curve. List of 2-tuples (x,y) ordered by increasing x

  • original_units (str) – The units the points were defined in

  • current_units (str) – The units the points are currently defined in. This MUST be ‘SI’ by the time one of the simulators is run.

  • options (Options, optional) – Water network options to lookup headloss function

property original_units

The original units the points were written in.

property current_units

The current units that the points are in

property name

Curve names must be unique among curves

property points

The points in the curve. List of 2-tuples (x,y) ordered by increasing x

property curve_type

None (unspecified), HEAD, HEADLOSS, VOLUME or EFFICIENCY

Type

The type of curve

property num_points

Returns the number of points in the curve.

to_dict()[source]

Dictionary representation of the curve

set_units(original=None, current=None)[source]

Set the units flags for the curve.

Use this after converting the points, if necessary, to indicate that conversion to SI units is complete.

class wntr.network.elements.Source(model, name, node_name, source_type, strength, pattern=None)[source]

Bases: object

Water quality source class.

Constructor

This class is intended to be instantiated through the add_source method.

Parameters
  • name (string) – Name of the source.

  • node_name (string) – Injection node.

  • source_type (string) – Source type, options = CONCEN, MASS, FLOWPACED, or SETPOINT.

  • strength (float) – Source strength in Mass/Time for MASS and Mass/Volume for CONCEN, FLOWPACED, or SETPOINT.

  • pattern (Pattern, optional) – If None, then the value will be constant. Otherwise, the Pattern will be used (default = None).
