The Philadelphia Water Department has investigated the application of real time control (RTC) to maximize the utilization of its existing combined sewer network facilities in its Southwest Drainage District. Prior to this study, extensive hydraulic modeling had taken place using the
SWMM EXTRAN model. The department wanted to leverage this significant investment in SWMM-based modeling, while at the same time take advantage of the SewerCAT modeling framework which allows for detailed analysis of real-time control. In order to satisfy these requirements, a version of the
EXTRAN routing model has been compiled as a Microsoft Windows® Dynamic Link Library and included as part of the SewerCAT modeling environment.
