Subject: Modelling Issues with Transmission Links Posted: 10/9/2011 Viewed: 24447 times
There are two rivers in my area. In winter, the whole flow from the first one is diverted to the second one. But in summer only a part of the first one is diverted to the second one and the rest of the fow continues in the initial route. If I use a diversion to simulate this, then the maximum flow diverted has to be in m3/s by default, whereas the flows in the rivers are expressed in m3/month. If I use a transmission link instead, WEAP lets me have the maximum flow in m3/month and of course I can choose which months to trasfer wateer from one river to the other. Should I go for this solution instead of the diversion?
