Computational Timestep

The methods in this category control the computational timestep at which the Aquifer solves. The Aquifer can solve at the Run Timestep or one of the following larger timesteps, where applicable: 1 Day, 1 Month, 1 Year.

Note: The computational timestep cannot be smaller than the run timestep.

Run Timestep

This aquifer will dispatch and solve at each of the run timesteps, when possible. This method allows you to have one method that applies if you change the run timestep size such that it will always solve at the run timestep.

1 Day

This aquifer will dispatch and solve each day at 24:00, when possible. This method is only valid for daily and sub-daily (1 Hour, 6 Hour, 15 Minute, 5 Minute) timesteps.

1 Month

When this method is selected, the aquifer will dispatch and solve at the end of each month, when possible. This method is only valid for monthly and sub-monthly (1 Day, 1 Hour, 6 Hour, 15 Minute, 5 Minute) timesteps.

1 Year

When this method is selected, the aquifer will dispatch and solve at the end of each year on 24:00 Dec 31, when possible. This method is valid for all run timesteps.
