dataset water production Bab Louta reservoir Morroco 2015 to 2018
- The province of Taza is located in the center North of Morocco and it is one of the 9 provinces of the region of Fez-Meknes (Morocco) with a population of roughly 530 000 inhabitants. The water treatment plant of Tahla provides a large population of the province, mainly the urban areas. It is situated 60 km from the city of Taza. The plant treats the raw water of the Bab Louta reservoir. The production system consists of a pumping station SP0 (case study of this paper) for raw water, a water treatment plant then another pumping station of SP3 to reach the city of Taza, which is the chief town of the province. - The pumping station SP0 is located about 3km from the reservoir. It is responsible for overcoming the difference in altitude between the raw water intake and the water treatment plant. The water is taken by gravitation from the reservoir to the pumping station SP0 through a pipe of a nominal diameter (ND) of 700 mm which converge to a diameter of 500 mm just before reaching the SP0. Then, the water is pumped through a pipe of a nominal diameter of 600 mm to a tank destined to provide the water treatment plant with raw water, it is called RMC0 and having a capacity of 1000 m3, which provides the water treatment plant with raw water through a pipe of a nominal diameter of 500 mm. - The pumping station, the object of the current study, is situated at an altitude of 498.20 m and tank RMC0 is situated at an altitude of 737.80 m. SP0 consists of four pumps (Figure 5) with a flow of 457 m3/h each and a manometric pressure of 209 m. They are manufactured by the company HIDROTECAR powered by an electric motor which is manufactured by LEROY SOMER with a nominal power of 455 kW. - To obtain a reliable model of our system, measurements of the key-parameters influencing this system were conducted. These measurements were taken in the period between January 2015 and December 2018 daily for the parameters.
