i have monthly reservoir elevation-

i have monthly reservoir elevation-

i have monthly reservoir elevation-

i have monthly reservoir elevation-discharge- storage.i gave input as monthly reservoir data as elevation-storage.elevation-discharge. but it showing error as ERROR 41553: Values in elevation-storage or storage-discharge table are not ascending for reservoir "Reservoir-1".
ERROR 40052: Found "1" errors in basin model "Basin 1". how it can recover.can i put elevation storage as monthly wise data?

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-


When requesting help on these forums, it is necessary to provide enough basic information for others to be able to provide that help (sorry, but this happens all too often).

*What software are you using?
*Exactly what section of the program are you trying to use the monthly data for?
(if it is typical stage-storage-discharge used in many Hyddrology & Hydraulics programs, the data WOULD typically need to be ascending values, not monthly data – you would need to sort your data accordingly)

Not knowing the context of your question. My comments above may be way off.

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

SORRY.iam using hechms for modelling runoff.i have monthly reservoir data like eleation-area-storage.whether i can put directly it in to the model?

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

the elevation-storage and storage-discharge tables are for routing flow through a reservoir and must be in ascending order. they generally are not monthly recorded data points.

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

is the discharge from the reservoir and release from reservoir are same?

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-


RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

i have monthly issues from the reservoir in Mcft(inside basin and outside basin like canal withdrawals). how it is converted into discharge?

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

you need instantaneous flow rates, not monthly volume totals. your discharge should be in cubic meters per second.

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

whether this discharge is discharge from the dam for various purpose or the discharge from the downstream/outlet structures of the dam?

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

elevation-storage.elevation-discharge data needs to be in instantaneous flow rates. HMS will report total releases for various time periods when you run the model

RE: i have monthly reservoir elevation-

You run the model for a particular storm, usually a 24 hour storm, but it can be longer. The data entries and outputs are in 10 minute or so increments with outflow rates and reservoir heights shown for the outlet specified.
