Rational Allocation Mehdi Mirzaee MMirzaee M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.irI want to make a relationship to allocating water. e.g. : if Q of River<5 cms then link outflow=2 cms
or something like this.

RE: Rational Allocation Jack Sieber jgsieber firstname.lastname@example.orgI'm not quite sure what you want to do. Allocations are based on demands (and supply available)--are you saying that the demand is function of streamflow, or that the amount available to allocate is a function of streamflow? Obviously, you cannot allocate more water than is available. For example, if Q < 2 CMS, then you cannot allocate 2 CMS.
WEAP will try to allocate such that all demands are satisfied, with preference to the highest priority demands. If your intent it to make sure that a certain minimum flow is maintained in the river, you could achieve this goal with a minimum instream flow requirement, immediately below the outflow point for the link. If the flow requirement had a higher priority than the demand, then it would be satisfied before any water was withdrawn. For example, if the flow requirement was 3 CMS, then a flow of 5 would allow at most 2 CMS to be allocated. A flow of 4 would allow at most 1 CMS.

RE: Rational Allocation Mehdi Mirzaee MMirzaee M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.irI didn't mean that. I wanted to know that is it possible that define a withdrawal water by an exprision or not. some thing like writing codes, as LINGO.

RE: Rational Allocation Jack Sieber jsieber email@example.comNo, it is not possible to define an expression, as a function of streamflow, that will determine how much to withdraw from the river.
