Since it is quite hard to demonstrate what openSCADA can do we are always in the search for a nice little demo application. Today we got one. EPANET is an industry standard for water simulation. Part of this is a hydraulic simulation system. A company called Baseform (http://baseform.org) created a Java version of EPANET which is released under the GPLv3. So there is a simulation driver now for openSCADA which can be used as descibed in the Wiki at https://openscada.atlassian.net/wiki/display/OP/EPANET+Hydraulic+Simulator.
Hopefully we will find the time to create a visualization and master server configuration for this to show the full feature set of openSCADA with this.
