New Quick Run Button in RDII Analyst for Fast RTK Calibration

One of the most powerful InfoSWMM and H2OMAP SWMM Application Tools from Innovyze is RDII Analyst.  RDII Analyst will separate out the Groundwater base flow, Dry Weather Flow (DWF), DWF Patterns, estimate the Wet Weather flow component or RDII  Rainfall -Derived Infiltration Inflow (I&I) and use a Genetic Algorithm to find  the best fit 12 RTK parameters for RDII modeling.  This powerful tool can  be used for RTK flow in InfoSWMM, H2OMAP SWMM, InfoSewer, SWMM 5 and InfoWorks ICM.  Figure 1 shows  the new Quick Run Button.  New to 2016 and  RDII  Analyst 2.0 is the Quick  Run Button which allows you to quickly recapture a previous run’s DWF,  DWF Pattern, GWI,  RDII Time  Series and the last RTK Calibration. This blog is an update  of a previous RDII Analysis Blog on the Innovyze Blog site.

Figure 2. In the RDII Analyst 2.0 you can have the option of using data from either the Innovyze product SCADAWatch or monitored Flow and Rainfall Files.

In RDII Anayst 2.0 the user has the  option of using Innovyze SCADAWatch data (Figure 2 and  3) or using the Quick   Run button to redo the previous  RTK analysis for any node with RTK data.  The Quick Run button (Figures 4,  5, 6, 7 and  8) does the  following:

  1. Loads the Flow and Rainfall  Data
  2. Extracts the mean DWF
  3. Extracts the GWi for the Flow Time Series
  4. Extracts the Weekday and Weekend DWF Pattern
  5. Extracts the Wet Weather Flow minus the DWF pattern and mean DWF
  6. Performs a RTK Analysis on the  Wet Weather Flow

Figure 3. You can use Innovyze SCADAWatch flow and rainfalldata for many Associated Junctions.

Figure 4. If you use separate Monitored Flow and Rainfall data in RDII Analyst 2.0 then you can use the Quick Run Button to quickly recapture past Calibration Sessions for any Node with RDII in your network.

Figure 6. After using the Quick Run Button or Calibrating the RTK parameters, the DWF,  DWF patterns, GWI and RDII time series can be exported to InfoSWMM where DB Tables will further allow you to manipulate, export or modify the data.

Figure 7. You can use the Simulatin options to expand or compress the dates for the RTK Calibration. If you want to calibrate the RTK for only one or two storms change the date in the simulaiton control and reuse the GA calibrater or the Once Run Icon.
