Controlling Reservoir Discharge


Explore Various Methods for Controlling Discharge from a Reservoir


This model explores 3 different methods of controlling discharge from a reservoir. The difference between these methods is important to understand for models that contain multiple reservoirs where discharge from one is being sent to another. Often times, oscillating behavior can occur in these kinds of models if proper discharge controls are not properly defined. Look for the elements inside each container that are highlighted yellow for logic that is specific to each case.
