IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Research on hierarchical flood operation mode for the three gorges reservoir
Author : TING HU(1), YUN WANG(2), XING-E HU(1) & HAI WANG(1)
l situation of middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River has been improved greatly by the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR) in China, and is further better due to the decreasing upstream water and new reservoirs being built up and running successively. Meanwhile, the downstream flood control demands are enhanced increasingly, which is caused by rapid development of economy and society along the river. With these new circumstances, the original design operation mode of TGR canít satisfy the latest flood control demands. In this paper, a hierarchical flood operation mode combining the reservoir water level and inflow in flood season was proposed based on the analyses of some special water levels and storage outflows of TGR, and multiple schemes were made and calculated. Results indicated that without decreasing the design flood control standard of TGR, the proposed mode can alleviate pressure of lower reaches more reasonably, increase navigation time and use flood resources more effectively. Compared with the original design mode, the annual average hydropower generation during flood season is increased by 8%. Besides, the proposed mode can be operated easily to obtain obvious comprehensive benefits, which may provide a new scientific reference for operation decision-making of TGR in flood season.Form Required :
