RTC or Real Time Control Rules

How Do the TimeOpen and TimeClose Controls Work in #SWMM 5.1.012

This is part of the #Inside_#SWMM5 series of blogs and is intended as a visual aid and code developer for the Storm Water Management Model Reference Manuals on https://www.epa.gov/water-research/storm-water-management-model-swmm I always think […]

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 […]

What are the Equations for Weirs in SWMM 5, Part 2?

Subject:   What are the Equations for Weirs in SWMM 5, Part 2?   There are four types of Weirs in SWMM 5:  Transverse, Sideflow, V Notch and Trapezoidal.   The trapezoidal weir is a combination of the Sideflow and V Notch Weir and the Sideflow […]

How to Approximate a Timer in the RTC Rules of SWMM 5

Subject:   How to Approximate a Timer in the RTC Rules of SWMM 5   SWMM 5 does not have a explicit timer in its Real Time Control (RTC) rules but you can approximate it by using a Control Curve as in the attached example model.  The Control Curve will modify the […]

Sensitivity Analysis in InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM

Subject:  Sensitivity Analysis in InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM       It is easy to perform sensitivity analysis in InfoSWMM and H2oMAP SWMM using the Scenario Manager, Dataset manager, Block Edit in the Database Editor, Batch Simulation and theReport Manager.  For example, we will do […]

Advanced SWMM 5 import into InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM

Subject:  Advanced SWMM 5 import into InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM The current version of InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM not only imports the latest SWMM 5 version but it has built in flexibility that allows the user to import selected data sections, model data sections or auxiliary file information such as calibration […]

SWMM 5 Clocktime RTC Rules for Pumps, Weirs and Orifices

Subject:  SWMM 5 Clocktime RTC Rules for Pumps, Weirs and Orifices   You can use the Control or RTC rules in SWMM 5 to adjust the settings of the weirs, pumps and orifices based on the clock time each day of your simulation.  Here is an example that will adjust orifice height every ½ […]

How to see the effect of the Pump Setting in the RTC Rules of InfoSWMM and H20MAP SWMM

Subject:  How to see the effect of the Pump Setting in the RTC Rules of InfoSWMM and H20MAP SWMM   Step 1.   Pump Startup and Shutoff Depth   Depths to turn the Pump On and turn the Pump Off.  In this example, the pump will be off when the Wet Well Depth is less than […]

Real Time Control (RTC) rule for the opening and closing of an orifice in SWMM 5

Here is an example Real Time Control (RTC) rule for the opening and closing of  an orifice.   RULE Orifice1 IF SIMULATION  CLOCKTIME >=  01:00:00 AND SIMULATION CLOCKTIME <=  2:00:00 THEN ORIFICE OR1@82309b-15009b SETTING = 1 ELSE ORIFICE OR1@82309b-15009b SETTING = 0 PRIORITY 1 ; Opens […]

Example RTC rule for the opening and closing of the orifice in SWMM5

Here is an example Real Time Control (RTC) rule for the opening and closing of  an orifice in SWMM5. RULE Orifice1 IF SIMULATION  CLOCKTIME >=  01:00:00 AND SIMULATION CLOCKTIME <=  2:00:00 THEN ORIFICE OR1@82309b-15009b SETTING = 1 ELSE ORIFICE OR1@82309b-15009b SETTING = 0 PRIORITY 1 ; […]

Orifice Open and Close Speed and the Target Setting

Orifice Open and Close Speed and the Target Setting In SWMM 5 there is an orifice parameter called setting which opens or closes the orifice opening by modifying the depth of the orifice.  The setting is  based either on a RTC rule of the orifice or the Flap Gate condition […]
