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.

Optimal operation of selective withdrawal system using fitted-q algorithm in a reservoir
Author : H. Yajima1,2, A.F. Castelletti 2,3, R. Soncini-Sessa3 and E. Weber 3
A reinforcement learning approach was developed and applied to design efficient management policies for selective withdrawal system with the purpose of meeting established water quality/quantity targets both in-reservoir and downstream. Structured design of experiment simulations was performed by a 1D hydrodynamic-ecological model of DYRESM-CAEDYM to generate a learning dataset over which a daily management policy was trained using fitted-Q algorithm based on extremely randomized trees. The approach was demonstrated on the management of Tono Dam reservoir. We set three objectives (algal bloom, sedimentation and water temperature) for the optimized operation. First we computed the operating policies corresponding to the extreme points of Pareto frontier obtained by only one objective, then the policies corresponding to regions of the Pareto frontier of potential interest for a compromised solution. The results indicated that this method could solve conflicting objectives for both water quality/quantity problems.
