For modeling piping systems we made a transition from the mass balance equations, based on 1m and 2m Kirchhoff laws, to the mathematical description of a hydraulic network using the continuity equation discretization. For this purpose we applied a controlvolume method. This paper introduces an extension of the developed control-volume method for extended period simulations in hydraulic networks. This extension is developed for slow time-varying conditions in the hydraulic networks and is not intended to calculate rapidly occurring local phenomena such as waterhammer. The control-volume method was successfully applied to test tasks.
