Technical Report WRD92039 Viewed at 15:07:17 on 29/07/2010 Page 22 of 192. 3. EQUIPMENT TESTING AND VALIDATION 3.1 GE:~ERAL Justification for corrunitment of this organisation to the proposed system will be based primarily on the successful demonstration of a working prototype. The prerequisite for the development: of the prototype system was to gain a measure of the performance and behavior of individual componentry and then of the system in its assembled form. A process for testing \~as devised which also served to gain experience and confidence in application, development of new skills and procedures and to assimilate the new system into the existing structure. componentry sourced for the construction of the water level monitoring systems for trial, apart from the ",esdata system, were dHsigned for surface water application. That is, relatively more docile environments in terms of magnitude and rate of water level movement, and not necessarily the requirement for portability. A maj or exercise was therefore to subj ect th,~ components to conditions experienced during test pumping to test performance. The suite of tests described below were designed with these conditions under consideration .:md comprise two standard test forms and field testing to obtain an indication of accuracy and repeatability. Reliability and. suitability assessment has been enabled from this testing. 3.2 STANDARD TESTS 3.2.1 Purposes '1'he critE,ria under which the testing procedures were developed are as below (i) To establish a procedure which may be readily applied and where system and component performance may be gauged under controlled, repeatable conditions; (ii) To ,~stablish a standard for comparison of systems and components;
