Advanced Demand Modelling with eWater Source


This one-day course explores the various methods available for demand modelling in Source, including:

  • irrigation demand modelling including crop demand models;
  • climate dependent models;
  • environmental demand (extractive and non-extractive), with the capacity to specify complex demand rules based on flow regimes;
  • resource assessment; and
  • urban demand restrictions.

If you attend this course, you will focus on areas of the node-link network where demand is modelled, exploring methods of generating orders, managing water extractions, and providing drainage return flows.

You will use various methods for modelling water demand, including time series demand, monthly patterns, crop models and environmental demand. You will learn how to manage orders and extractions through a simple distribution system where accounting is not required, and be introduced to accounts when resource assessment and accounting functions. You will also explore how to manage water user storages such as on-farm storages (OFS).

Who should attend

This training is aimed at professionals (e.g. engineering and environmental) in local government, consultancies, waterway agencies and research organisations. It should be of particular interest for consultancies hoping to work for the key state and federal jurisdictions in the process of implementing Source as the National Hydrological Modelling Platform.
