Hi, I'm doing an automatization and I need to select the units of the Streamflow to m3/s, in order to export results into cvs.

Is it possible to select via COM, using the ResultSetting or other function the units?

Thanks a lot.

No, it is not possible to set the Results View unit via the API (COM).

Hi Jack,

Also a unit setting/automation related question.

I'm currently using the API through Python.

I have multiple Catchment nodes that I am trying to read data into. I have successfully read in data for several values but am struggling with the Area variable. It appears because there is no default unit for Area is given I cannot directly read in my data. If I manually set the units to Ha for example I can access the variable and set it as I wish.

So my question, is there a way I can set the units of the Area variable within a catchment node automatically? Either at a global or local scale. I'm happy to set it at a global scale manually if that is a possible solution.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Jack

At this time, it is not possible to set any units via the API. You will first need to set the unit manually in WEAP before you can use the API to set the expression for Area.

Hello Jack.

I was wondering if nowadays there has been an update to this topic.

Is there a way to set the unit for area for all the catchments?
Thanks in advance,

Felipe A.

Hello Felipe,

Yes, it is now possible to use the WEAP API to set units for Key Assumptions and Demand Sites and Catchments branches. For example, to set the area unit for all catchments to one thousand hectares, here is the VBS statement:

FOR EACH Br IN WEAP.Catchments
Br.Variables("Area").ScaleUnit = "1000 ha"
NEXT
