SCADA tab is available in the Run manager window which allows a simulation based on SCADA data.

Demand Adjustment Method

Select the appropriate option here and then enter the value in "Demand Adjustment Factor" field.

 Show More
Scaling FactorScale the junction node demands according to a user defined scaling factor.  The scaling factor is specified in the Demand Adjustment Factor entry field.  For example, if the total system demand for all junctions is 1200 unit (at the specified Pattern Start Time) and the Demand Adjustment Factor is set to 5, then all junction demands will be multiplied by 5 to give a total system demand of 6000 unit.
Total System DemandDivide the value specified in the Demand Adjustment Factor by the existing system demand (at the specified Pattern Start Time) and then multiply all junction node demands by the resulting ratio.  For example, if the value specified in the Demand Adjustment Factor is 800 gpm and the actual junction demand at hour 2:00 is 1000 gpm, then all junction nodes will be multiplied by the resulting ratio (0.8).
% Inflow / OutflowAdjust all junction nodes by the percentage value specified in the Demand Adjustment Factor to the difference between system inflows and outflows as specified from the SCADA System Data Edit.  For example, if 25 (25%) is entered into the Demand Adjustment Factor field, all junction demands (as computed from the difference between system inflows and outflows) will be multiplied by the percentage value entered into the Demand Adjustment Factor.  If the system inflow/outflow measurement option is chosen, the inflow/outflow measurement meters must first be configured using through the SCADA System Edit dialog box.
Demand Adjustment FactorSpecify the demand Adjustment factor. The factor will be dependant on the Demand Adjustment method and is a means to normalize the demands to reflect your true SCADA demands.
SCADA Input Data File

Specify the location of the manually created SCADA input data file. Click on Ellipsis to browse to the file path. If a SCADAWatch server is available, SCADA input data can be populated from the server.  After setting up real-time access mappings, SCADA simulation can run by pulling data through SCADAWatch Connect when the checkbox is selected. The live data file will be outputted at the location the user specifies in the text window, shown above. Automatic run is also supported.

Pull Data Through SCADAWatch ConnectWhen this checkbox is checked, initial values are pulled from SCADAWatch as described in the SCADAWatch Connect
SCADAWatch Connect...This button brings up the External Data Connect window.
Model Start DateThis date-time is only applicable when Real-Time radio is selected. Basically simulation starts from this date.
Update MappingsWhen this button is pressed, mapping information entered at Data Channel tab of SCADAWatch Connect will be modified to the selected date, and the Output will be set to SCADA.
Real-TimeThis options uses the current time of the computer with the selected date to pull the information from SCADAWatch
HistoricalThis option allows to select any date and any time. Based on this date and time, information from SCADAWatch will be pulled and saved to SDA file
SDA File PathThis field must be filled with a path to a file that has extension of .SDA.
Browse Ellipsis (... button)This button will allow to either select existing SDA file or create a new file at selected location.
