Timestep

```
Result = time()
```

- Result
- non spatial scalar

This operation is used in the iterative sections (dynamic, storage and
transport sections) of a dynamic model script only. For each timestep in a
model run, the operator assigns to Result the time *t* at the timestep *i* under consideration. The time at the first timestep (i = 1) is t(start), the time at the second timestep (i = 2) is t(start) + timeslice, at the third time step (i = 3) is t(start) + 2 x timeslice, etc. The time dimension in a model (i.a. t(start), timeslice) is defined in the timer section of a *Dynamic Modelling Script*.

This operation belongs to the group of Time operators
