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.

Optimising reservoir operation using a multi-objective simulationoptimisation framework
Author : H. Madsen, B. Richaud, E. Gelati, C.B. Pedersen and D. Rosbjerg
A simulation-optimisation framework is presented that couples a hydraulic and hydrological simulation model with a numerical optimisation algorithm for optimising reservoir operations with respect to different management objectives. The optimisation tool includes a general multi-objective methodology that searches for the set of non-dominated or Pareto optimal solutions according to the trade-offs between the different objectives. The framework can be used off-line for optimising rulecurve operation strategies as well as on-line for real-time optimisation utilising real-time and forecast information about reservoir inflows and water demands. Operational improvements using the developed simulation-optimisation framework are demonstrated on three case studies.
