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.

Study on the Real-time Dynamic Controlling Method of Limited Reservoir Water-level in Flood Season Based on Short-term Rainfall Forecast Information and Its Risk Analysis
Author : Minglei Ren, Xiaoyan He, Jinchi Huang, Hui Li and Fan Wang
The traditional conception of reservoir flood operation usually pays most attention on preventing small probability flood event, the limited reservoir water-level is statically controlled in the designed flood control water-level, more water storage above the flood control water-level is not permitted in flood season. Consequently, many reservoirs produce plenty of abandoned water because of t he constraint of designed flood control water-level in flood season, whereas there is no water for storage after flood season. This operation method pays more attention on the safety of flood control, but ignores the benefit of water conservancy of reservoir, the flood resources cannot be used effectively and sufficiently. Based on the new conception of the dynamic control of limited reservoir water-level in flood season, targeted at improving the efficiency of using water resources, a new real-time operation method which uses short-term rainfall forecast for carrying out dynamic control of limited reservoir water-level in flood season is proposed in this paper, and its possible risk associated with dam, upstream, downstream when the error of short-term rainfall forecast occurs is also analyzed. The proposed methodology is applied to a large reservoir in Shanxi province, China. Results show that in the premise of ensuring the s afety of the dam, upstream and downstream, the dynamic control method of limited reservoir water-level in flood season can make the best of flood resources. The studied method can also be applied for the real-time operation of other large reservoirs, especially for the reservoirs that with excellent regulation performance and responsible for flood control in water shortage region.
