How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?


Subject:  How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?

 

The Real Time Control Rule for Orifice Setting can be a function of a Setting constant, Setting from a Curve, Setting from a PID controller and a Setting from a Time Series (Figure 1).    The Setting affects the Full Depth of the Orifice at each time step.  The setting which ranges from 0 to 1 can either completely close or open theorifice (Figure 2).   You will have to use the equivalent in ICM or else the settings derived from the SWMM 5 time series need to be multiplied by the orifice depth to have the same effect in ICM that it had in SWMM 5.
