10Reservoir/River System Operation Models

Introduction

This chapter covers simulation and optimization models for analyzing water quantity aspects of reservoir system operations. Water quality considerations were addressed in Chapter 9. Chapter 10 is the only chapter in which optimization (mathematical programming) models are emphasized as well as simulation models. Optimization techniques are also applied in the modeling areas addressed by the other chapters, but not to the extent as in the analysis of reservoir/river system operations.

Model Applications

Reservoir/river system analysis models are used for various purposes in a variety of settings. Models are used in planning studies to aid in the formulation and evaluation of alternative ...
