A thermal curtain was retrospectively fitted in to enable diversion of water from the surface.

Control of algal blooms in reservoirs with a curtain: a numerical analysis. The use of reservoir outlet works incorporating selective withdrawal device is a method of controlling the quality of release water (Darrel et al., ). Selective withdrawal allows the release of water from various strata of the by: Temperature Control Measures As part of the companion engineering study (Stetson Engineers ), a range of feasible temperature control measures for use in various combinations during the summer months at the UNFFR Project were identified, including: (1) a thermal curtain at the Prattville intake in Lake Almanor, with and without. Control Program Flowchart for a Temperature Control System using LM35 28 Flowchart for Water Level and Temperature Control using a PLC 31 Block Diagram of an Automatic Temperature File Size: 2MB.   As the reservoir was drawn down in autumn to make room for flood-control storage, the heat that was captured in the reservoir's upper layer during the summer was released downstream. As a result, the seasonal temperature pattern (darker line on chart) downstream of Cougar Dam through was quite different from the pattern upstream of .

Reclamation (Bureau of Reclamation) is developing flexible curtain barriers to control reservoir release water temperatures for structures in the Trinity River and Sacramento River drainages of northern California. The curtains provide selective withdrawal control. The average altitude of the study area is m, and the climate is a typical plateau continental alpine mountain climate. It is characterized by a low average temperature, large daily variations, and cold winters, with multiyear average temperatures ranging from − °C to 9 °C (Feng et al., ).There are 11 hydrological stations that record long-term water temperature Author: Lei Ren, Ce Song, Wei Wu, Mengjing Guo, Xiaode Zhou. Start studying 5 controls of temperature. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. The environmental impact of reservoirs comes under ever-increasing scrutiny as the global demand for water and energy increases and the number and size of reservoirs increases.. Dams and reservoirs can be used to supply drinking water, generate hydroelectric power, increase the water supply for irrigation, provide recreational opportunities, and flood control.
