Abstract: Minimization of energy loss of water supply networks is a major concern of pump power reduction for sustainable water systems in buildings. This paper presents a mathematical model for energy loss optimization in a common basic T-shaped water supply piping network that serves infinite probabilistic demands. Optimized designs based on proper network pipe sizes are analyzed. Optimal pipe radius ratios (21/7 to 23/7) and their corresponding energy implications in the network are also discussed. The results show that existing piping designs are not optimized for probabilistic demands and there is potential for energy loss reduction.
