Integrators and Reservoirs both accumulate (integrate) values. Both accumulate values using either a rate multiplied by elapsed time, or discrete changes. The primary differences between Integrators and Reservoirs is that Reservoirs have bounds (upper and lower) and in a Reservoir accumulation and removal are specified separately with addition and withdrawal.
If you need to allocate multiple outflows, it is highly recommended that you use the Pool element instead.
A variety of examples of using the Reservoir element are provided below, including examples of setting bounds on a Reservoir.
