  • Optimization–simulation for short-term reservoir operation under flooding conditions

    The problem of optimal operation of river–reservoir systems under flooding conditions is formulated in this study as a combination of particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm and a simulation model of river flood routing. Both hydrologic (Muskingum and Muskingum-Cunge) and hydraulic (solving Saint-Venant equations) flow routing methods are linked to the PSO algorithm with the objective ...
