You have done the manual run using Darwin Calibrator, but the results of the exported solution do not match the model.
In order to match the results that you are getting from Simulated Results tab in Calibrator (see image below) you will need to do the following:
In your model you will need to set your calculation options as follows:
Setting the calculation option for “Is EPS Snapshot?" = True ensures that your model is going to use the pattern multiplier that Calibrator used when doing its calculations. (otherwise, it would simply use the base demands)
After the changes are made to the scenario, compute it, and look at the properties of the observed target in your model to make sure it matches the simulated results in Calibrator.
Note that if you have multiple Field Data Snapshots, you will need to check them one at a time per the steps above, as this is what Darwin is doing as well. Darwin computes a steady state simulation for each field data snapshot, at the time designated in the snapshot, and with the boundary overrides, demand adjustments, etc. This is done so that the calibration matches the field conditions at the time that the field data was observed. It does this steady state simulation for each field data snapshot (with its set up boundary adjustments, demand adjustments and field observations) for each "guess" at the adjusted roughness and/or demand, then checks the calculated results for each snapshot for that particular adjusted roughness/demand, compared to the field observations, and evolves from there to refine the roughness/demand adjustment, in an attempted to match the observed values.
The Solutions that Darwin arrives at and that you can export, consist of the adjusted roughness, demand and/or element status. As per the above, you'll need to match up a field data snapshot's boundary overrides and demand adjustments, along with the time in the calculation options, in order to set up a steady state run that matches what Darwin was "seeing" (and reporting in the Solution, for how close it got to the field observations with its suggested adjustments).
Using Darwin Calibrator
In Darwin Calibrator why are my original demands on the solutions tab not matching with the demands entered in the demand control center?
