VIRTUAL RIVER for retention basins on the Emscher
Test system for the optimization and testing of the control of the outlet structures
After DHI had accompanied the conception and design of the retention basins in the Mengede and Ellinghausen network for years, GR-Consult took over the models in a system with VIRTUAL RIVER.
By embedding the models created with MIKE1D in VIRTUAL RIVER, a test system is available with which the real control modules can be tested and approved for any hydrological-hydraulic conditions.
During tests and acceptance, the fully programmed controls (Siemens S7) can communicate with VIRTUAL RIVER via OPC-UA. VIRTUAL RIVER provides all the data that is also available for the real retention basin.
