Demonstration of GoldSim optimization capabilities using a simple reservoir and hydropower model

Water balance model illustrating a negative feedback loop and of the use of scenarios with a dashboard

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate how GoldSim can calculate hydraulic functions dynamically.

The interaction between a reservoir and a large aquifer is simulating using a simple seepage model

Commonly used Muskingum hydrologic routing is implemented in GoldSim with Reservoir elements

This simple model shows one method for allocating competing demands on a Reservoir.

Operating rules control outflows from a reservoir that contains operating zones divided into surcharge, flood control, conservation, and dead pool zones.

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.

Simulate the breach in a dam as it grows through time and the resulting discharge hydrograph

Monte Carlo Simulation of the Dam Breach algorithm to calculate risk of failure

Simulate the operation of a simple reservoir with an overflow spillway.

This model is based on the Great Falls Project, a series of five hydroelectric dams near Great Falls, Montana.

This simple example simulates the flow between and the levels of a twotank system using Bernoulli's theorem.

This model illustrates how several methods for calculating a reservoir discharge can be combined into a single model. The methods includes calculations based on fluid physics, lookup tables and volumetrically under lowlevel conditions.

Check that inflows, outflows, and changes in storage within your flow model balance.

Example model illustrating a weir flow calculation for spillway outflow which is limited by available volume for use with long time steps

This model demonstrates the use of a Status element to control discharges from a reservoir.

This model incorporates the Scenario Manager to assist with stakeholder evaluations of environmental flow alternatives.

Using a submodel, calculate the recurrence interval and exceedence probability of annual reservoir spill events

This model counts the number of days in which some failure occurs. A failure event is defined as a reservoir overflow occurrence for any duration within a single day.

Calculate future, monthly water demands based on current usage and an annual projection

Simulate the feedback loop between water sales revenues and funding a conservation program.

The purpose of this model is to demonstrate the use of GoldSim elements to represent a flow network of multiple storage elements that distribute water for water use. Water enters the system via "Inflow_Data".
