RTC or Real Time Control Rules

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 […]
