Abstract: In this paper, a hybrid particle swarm optimization (HPSO) algorithm is proposed to solve the problem of optimal water operation of cascade reservoirs in dry season. Based on the basic particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm, chaos algorithm is introduced to traverse the search space to generate the initial population and improve the global searching ability of the algorithm. A self-adaptive inertial weighting method based on optimized inertial weighting coefficient is adopted to improve the ability of particle individual search and avoid local optimum. The proposed algorithm is applied to the optimal water operation in dry season of cascade reservoirs on the mainstream of Xijiang River. The results show that the HPSO algorithm can effectively improve the guarantee degree of ecological flow and suppressing salinity flow in the control reach of Wuzhou station under different typical dry year scenarios.
