Describe input parameters The Rippl function executes the sequent peak algorithm to determine the no-fail storage for given inflow and release time series. The storage function gives the design storage for a specified timebased reliability and yield. Similarly, the yield function computes yield given the storage capacity. The rrv function returns three reliability measures, relilience, and dimensionless vulnerability for given storage, inflow time series, and target release. Users can assume Standard Operating Policy, or can apply the output of sdp analysis to determine the RRV metrics under different operating objectives. The Hurst function estimates the Hurst coefficient for an annualized inflow time series.
