Using Autocal with Mike Hydro
« on: May 17, 2018, 08:06:07 am »
Hi, I'd like to ask if it's possible to use Mike Zero's Autocal with Mike Hydro and Ecolab? I'm trying to run a Mike Hydro river simulation with the water quality described by an Ecolab file, and I wish to calibrate some of the water quality parameters in Ecolab. However, when I opened a new Autocal file (.auc) in Mike Zero and specified the Mike Hydro model under "Simulation sequence" and the Ecolab file under "Model Parameter file", the Ecolab file isn't replicated with another file (same filename with _Autocal appended) where I can edit and specify (using a floating point number) which are the parameters I wish to optimise. I tried using Mike 11 with Ecolab and ran into the same problem. For Mike Hydro, I found I couldn't even run Autocal with just a hydrodynamic simulation (i.e. no water quality, and specifying the Mike Hydro model file as the "Model Parameter file" in this case). Appreciate any advice on:

1. How to use Mike Zero's Autocal for calibrating Ecolab parameters in a Mike Hydro simulation?
2. How to use Mike Zero 's Autocal for calibrating Ecolab parameters in a Mike 11 simulation?
3. How to use Mike Zero's Autocal for calibrating hydrodynamic parameters (e.g. Manning's n) in a Mike Hydro simulation?

Thanks for the help!
