How can I use patterns to change the pump speed over time (or turn it on/off based on time), or reservoir hydraulic grade over time?
Each reservoir and pump can have its own pattern assigned to it.
Steps to create and assign a reservoir pattern:
Note: this pattern only applies to an Extended Period Simulation (EPS).
To change the hydraulic grade over time during a transient simulation in HAMMER, use the periodic head-flow element: Modeling a change in HGL or flow during a transient simulation
A pump pattern can be used to turn a pump on/off over time (simpler than creating time-based logical controls), or change the speed of the pump over time (for example if you already know how the pump ramps up.down over time)
Steps to create and assign a pump pattern:
Note: this pattern only applies to the speed of the pump during an Extended Period Simulation (EPS).
To change the pump speed over time during a transient simulation, use the pump's transient Operating Rule.
You can also assign patterns using FlexTables. This will allow you to sort by zone or pump station.
