Abstract:

This is Volume 9 of a 12 volume report prepared by the Hydrologic Engineering Center as a part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contribution to the International Hydrologic Decade. Procedures used in the analysis of reservoir systems for conservation are discussed. The main emphasis of the volume is upon the construction, formulation and operation of a simulation model used to evaluate the performance of a reservoir system design and operating plan. Topics include identification of the reservoir system, determination of study objectives and criteria, model formulation, model validation, organization and execution of simulation runs, analysis and evaluation of alternative systems. An example illustrating the hydrologic operation of a simplified simulation model is presented for a three reservoir system. Author
