### Net, Loading and unloading of resources

Hello guys, i would like to know how to do the coding for the equation section if i want to let the model automatically let the positive value of NVS equals to "LVS" and negative value of NVS equals to -ULVS/0.9. And how to do the coding for CVS? Many thanks!

Eq8nvs(i,d).. NVS(i,d) =E= VSS(i,d)-IVSD(i,d);

Eq8e(i,d).. CVS(i,'d1')=E= VSS(i,'d1')-IVSD(i,'d1');

Eq8f(i,d).. CVS(i,d)=E= CVS(i,d-1)+[VSS(i,d)]-IVSD(i,d);

im doing it halfway and stucked...

NVS = net vs resource

LVS = loading of VS into storage tank

ULVS=unloading of VS from storage tank

CVS=cumulative of VS resources.

### Re: Net, Loading and unloading of resources

Looks like all these are parameters. You don't need =e= type equations for this. This are simply assignments like you do in a normal program.

what do you mean by "positive value of NVS equal to "LVS"" if you already have a value, do you want to reset it? Do you already have values for NVS?

If so,

NVS(i,d)$(NVS(i,d) > 0) = LVS(i,d);

NVS(i,d)$(NVS(i,d) < 0) = -ULVS(i,d)/0.9;

If all of these are not parameters, then your question does not make sense because variables don't have values. They have values only after solve.

Hope this helps.

### Re: Net, Loading and unloading of resources

Hi, i do realised that should be put under parameter too! However, i would required to use some variables obtain from the equation section and put in the parameter section, but then the error shows "a suffix is missing..."

Cmole(j)=sum[i,Cij(i,j)]/Cmw;

Hmole(j)=sum[i,Hij(i,j)]/Hmw;

Omole(j)=sum[i,Oij(i,j)]/Omw;

Nmole(j)=sum[i,Nij(i,j)]/Nmw;

Cmole(j)=sum[i,Cij(i,j)]/Cmw;

Hmole(j)=sum[i,Hij(i,j)]/Hmw;

Omole(j)=sum[i,Oij(i,j)]/Omw;

Nmole(j)=sum[i,Nij(i,j)]/Nmw;

### Re: Net, Loading and unloading of resources

After solve, variables have much more information than just the solution. They have (.l, .lo, .up, .scale, .m). Please take a look at variable attributes for more details: https://www.gams.com/latest/docs/UG_Var ... Attributes

When you just write variablename, GAMS does not understand which one of these you really want. This is why you get suffix is missing error. You should use .l

Please use code blacks like the one I have used here if you post a code fragment/entire code. This way other users can just copy and run your code.

Many thanks for your advises and tips! Never know i can include the variable attributes like you show. God bless you.

### Re: Net, Loading and unloading of resources

There are many many fundamentally wrong things in this piece of code. Brings me back to my initial comment

"what do you mean by "positive value of NVS equal to "LVS"" if you already have a value, do you want to reset it? Do you already have values for NVS?"

Parameter

LVS(i,d) VS loading,

ULVS(i,d) VS unloading

;

When you say this you mean that you "know" the value of LVS and ULVS before you solve.

When you say that NVS depends on LVS, and by the above statement (i.e., you know LVS), you should also know NVS, therefore NVS should be a parameter as well.

Note that variables have values only "after" solve. So I don't know what you want to do and it will be good for you to invest some time understanding the concepts of parameters and variables. So the following statement is meaningless because there are no .l values.

NVS.l(i,d)$(NVS.l(i,d) > 0) = LVS(i,d);

I don't know what you want to model but I can confirm that this current logical sequence in your model is wrong.
