Annual and Monthly Reporting Periods


The purpose of this model is to demonstrate the use of Reporting Periods in GoldSim. The simulation calculates reservoir storage on a daily basis and the reservoir overflows are reported on a monthly and annual basis. It is assumed that seepage losses from the pond cause a withdrawal rate of the amount in the reservoir divided by 5 years.

The Result called "Reservoir History" is a plot of average and instantaneous inflows compared to the average and instantaneous reservoir volumes. The "Overflow Summaries" chart shows the reservoir overflows as instantaneous, average, and cumulative amounts for each reporting period. Note the title in the Reporting Period charts change depending on the period selected. This is done using keywords.
