The design rainfall based on regional frequency analysis using tl-moment method

Segel Ginting, William M Putuhena


The designstorm wereestimated by applying the regional frequency analysis provides benefits to a datasetwith limited amount of data has many advantages. Minimum data used in calculating the amount of design stromhas a very large error for higherreturn period. Therefore, the regional frequency analysis was used based on TL-moments method. There arethree types of probability distributions used in this study, namely the Generalized Extreme Value (GEV), Generalized Pareto (GPA) and the Generalized Logistic (GLO). Two of the three typesprobability distributions are the best choice by the TL-moment ratio diagrams which are Generalized Extreme Value, and Generalized Logistic. Ananother analysis wasconducted by the Z test and the Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) gives the best results. Therefore, the designs strom which was estimated based on the regional frequency analysis in Jakarta watersheds using the Generalized Extreme Value (GEV) has been determined.
