How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?

Subject:  How is the Orifice Setting Used in SWMM 5 RTC Rules?

The Real Time Control Rule for Orifice Setting can be a function of a Setting constant, Setting from a Curve, Setting from a PID controller and a Setting from a Time Series (Figure 1).    The Setting affects the Full Depth of the Orifice at each time step.  The setting which ranges from 0 to 1 can either completely close or open theorifice (Figure 2).   You will have to use the equivalent in ICM or else the settings derived from the SWMM 5 time series need to be multiplied by the orifice depth to have the same effect in ICM that it had in SWMM 5.

 Figure 2.  The Setting affects the Full Depth of the Orifice at each time step.  The setting which ranges from 0 to 1 can either completely close or open the orifice.
