How to show Curve RTC Rules in #SWMM5 in the Control Actions Taken Section
#SWMM5 has very flexible control rules. The rules are shown in the controls.c code. However, one aspect I did not know was that if a rule is based on a control curve the RPT logging of the control actions is not shown. You can change by changing and compiling the code. You will need to get rid of the half rule
&& a1->curve < 0 so that the changing of the target setting is logged – see below for a snippet of the code.
Here is a sample curve tool
IF SIMULATION TIME > 4
AND SIMULATION TIME <= 6
THEN PUMP Gbp1 SETTING = CURVE myControl
And here is the control action log in the RPT file – it helps to see this log and verify the rules

listItem = ActionList;
while ( listItem )
a1 = listItem->action;
if ( !a1 ) break;
if ( a1->link >= 0 )
if ( Link[a1->link].targetSetting != a1->value )
Link[a1->link].targetSetting = a1->value;
//if ( RptFlags.controls && a1->curve < 0 //(5.1.011) Original Rule
if ( RptFlags.controls //(5.1.011) New rule
&& a1->tseries < 0 && a1->attribute != r_PID ) //(5.1.011)
