7.2 - What is a Scenario?

A scenario is a dataset that includes all of the input files used to prepare a model simulation (i.e. consumptive use analysis). The input files are specified in the StateCU response (*.rcu) file. The StateCU GUI recognizes two different types of scenarios – a Climate Station Scenario and a Structure Scenario.

The word scenario may be used interchangeably throughout this document with the words dataset, analysis, or simulation.
