The assigned demand would be the same as the requested demand, and the consumption will be the result of the simulation.
Those can differ:
- For a Pressure Driven Analysis: in this case, water demand dynamically adjusts according to current pressure levels, reducing gradually under a specified threshold and ceasing entirely below a critical cutoff to avoid negative pressures in the network.
- When performing a scenario where the demand cannot be met.
E.g.: when a tank empties and cannot provide the assigned demand.
