Introduction to RTC-Tools 2.0 – Workshop

Friday, 28 October 2016

This 1-day intensive course is designed to learn the basics of Decision support system development using RTC-Tools. RTC-Tools is Deltares’ open source software package for control and optimization of environmental systems.
RTC-Tools sets itself apart from other packages with its ease of use, integration of Python and Delft-FEWS, extensibility and its rigorous treatment of multiple, possibly competing, objectives, as well as its explicit inclusion of forecast uncertainty.

There is no specific knowledge required. Familiarity with modelling techniques will be an advantage. Don’t forget to Bring Your Own Laptop!

Program Overview:

  • Introduction to RTC-Tools 2.0
  • Software installation
  • Short presentation on forecast uncertainty
  • Breakout sessions:
    1. Multi-objective optimization of a reservoir system
    2. Water allocation
    3. Energy-efficient polder drainage

NB: All break-out session topics will be offered twice, so you can attend 2 out of 3.
