Optimization of Reservoir Operation by Rule Curve Adjustment
MetadataShow full item record
A MATLAB model of reservoir operation was developed with historical data of Lake Okatibbee in Mississippi. A downstream flow requirement and reservoir operation rule were assumed for the reservoir. The rule curve was fed into the model as a parameter, and was optimized according to resultant lake elevation and downstream flow. The simulation results showed that by optimization of the rule curve, the lake elevation could be kept at an optimal level while the downstream flow requirement can be met with more reliability.
