Real Time Control of Rainwater Harvesting Systems: The Benefits of Increasing Rainfall Forecast Window

Abstract Use of real time control (RTC) technology in rainwater harvesting systems can improve performance across water supply, flood protection, and environmental flow provision. Such systems make the most of rainfall forecast information, to release water prior to storm events and thus minimize uncontrolled overflows. To date, most advanced applications have adopted 24‐hr forecast information, […]
