Detecting and locating leaks in water distribution systems is of great interest. For the localization of leaks we make use of pressure sensors alongside a calibrated hydraulic EPANET model of the investigated system. Leakage localization is solved with a Differential Evolution algorithm. For sensor placement we use a non-binarized leak sensitivity matrix with a projection-based leak isolation approach. Additionally, the effect of uncertain hydraulic model parameters on the measurement quantities is investigated by Monte Carlo simulations and was incorporated in the sensor placement algorithm. Uncertainty analysis, sensor placement and leakage location was tested on two hydraulic systems.
