Title: Computer files used in the calculation of Rutland and Grafham yields
Author: Glenn Watts
Document Type: Monograph
Reservoir yield is calculated by simulating the behaviour of the system over the historic period. The first stage is to naturalise gauged flows so that future catchment conditions can be applied. Subsequently a simulation model is used to calculate the yield. For Rutland and Grafham calculation of yield is carried out in two stages; a simulation model calculates available water for each month of the historic period and a generic yield model called OS AY determines the yield using a levels of service approach. Rutland and Grafham yield models have been used extensively in modelling for the National and Regional Water Resources Strategies. As well as calculating the yield of the systems in their existing configurations the models have also been used to investigate the advantages of augmentation of available flows from the Trent. This work has been reported in Cook et al (1993), Cook (1993) and Watts (1993). This document details the PC computer tiles used in the calculation of Rutland and Grafham yield.
