Model illustrations
The tutorials used throughout this guide are specifically simplified so that you can easily learn how to use ExtendSim. In contrast, simulation is more typically used to model complex pro- cesses, like the ones shown on the following pages.
Santee River Basin Model (SRM), developed by the National Heritage Institute, et al
This continuous hydrologic model predicts how operational alternatives will affect hydropower generation, lake levels, in- stream flow, and water uses. It analyzes how dam operations can be altered to improve stream flow in over 300 river miles and helps assess the effects on lake levels and power generation. A series of hierarchical blocks with nested submodels keep details in layers below the model’s realistic top level. For instance, the Catawba-Wateree hierarchical block contains 9 addi- tional hierarchical blocks, some of which contain even more layers.
