A numerical method that uses linear graph theory is presented for both steady state, and extended period simulation in a pipe network including its hydraulic components (pumps, valves, junctions, etc.). The developed model is based on the Extended Linear Graph Theory (ELGT) technique. This technique is modified to include new network components such as flow control valves and tanks. The technique also expanded for extended period simulation (EPS). A newly modified method for the calculation of

The results reveal the finer performance of the proposed method. ª 2013 Faculty of Engineering, Alexandria University. Production and hosting by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
