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.

Reservoir capacity-potential power generation-reliability estimation based on gould-dincer approach
Author : Jinming Xie1, George W. Annandale2 and Baosheng Wu1
This paper proposes a method based on the Gould-Dincer approach, which, for planning purposes, relates potential hydroelectric power generation, reservoir capacity, annual water inflow series characteristics and reliability of power supply. The method is intended for use in assessing storage hydroelectric power projects but does not cover run-of-river hydroelectric power generation. For a specified reliability, the paper demonstrates that annual average potential energy generation increases with increasing mean annual discharge and storage capacity, and that it decreases with increasing coefficient of variation of annual stream flow.
