tsnet conducts transient simulation using MOC method for water distribution systems.

Project description Documentation Status

TSNet performs transient simulation in water networks using MOC method.


A number of commercial softwares for transient simulation in water distribution systems are available in the market; however, the use of these softwares for research purposes is restricted. The major restriction is due to the fact that the softwares are packed as black boxes, and the source code is not visible, thus prohibiting any changes, including modification of existing and implementation of new elements, in the source code. Therefore, the authors find it imperative to develop an open source package rendering easiness for interaction, modification, and extension.


TSNet is a Python package designed to perform transient simulation in water distribution networks. It canThe software includes capability to:

  • Generate water network models based on .inp files
  • Operate network elements, including pumps and valves, to generate transient events
  • Add disruptive events including pipe bursts and leakages
  • Perform transient simulation using MOC method
  • Visualize results
