General Slots

Inflow

Type: SeriesSlot

Units: FLOW

Description: Flow rate at the entrance of the object

Information:

I/O: Optional; can be input or linked

Links: May be linked to the Outflow of another object.

Outflow

Type: SeriesSlot

Units: FLOW

Description: Flow rate at the exit of the object

Information:

I/O: Output only

Links: May be linked to the Inflow of another object

Forecast Period

Type: TableSlot

Units: NONE

Description: The forecast period is a number of timesteps, including the current simulation timestep, that is used in the algorithms for calculating forecasted hydrology, regulation discharge and flood releases. This can be propagated from a computational subbasin of which the control point is a member.

Information:

I/O: Required input

Links: Not linkable

Upstream Reservoirs

Type: ListSlot

Units: NONE

Description: List of upstream reservoirs that route to this control point during the forecast period.

Information: Routing coefficients must be provided in the Routing Coefficients slot for each reservoir in this list.

I/O: Required input

Links: Not linkable

Routing Coefficients

Type: TableSlot

Units: NONE, NONE

Description: Contains linear routing coefficients for routing flow from each reservoir specified in the Upstream Reservoirs slot.

Information: Each column corresponds to a reservoir specified in the Upstream Reservoirs slot. Each row represents a timestep starting with the current timestep. At each intersection of a row and a column is a decimal number to represent the routing coefficient from that reservoir for that timestep. The coefficients in a column for a reservoir must sum to 1.0 and must not be NaN.

Note: The routing coefficients are not used in the solution of Control Point Outflow. They are strictly used in flood control and other basin wide operations; see Flood Control.

I/O: Required input if Upstream Reservoirs are defined
