Abstract:

This paper summarizes the Interim findings of the second phase of the HEC-PRM Columbia River application. The HEC-PRM represents the Columbia system as a link-node network and uses network-flow programming to optimize, in time and space, flow and storage in the system. The representation of operational goals in HEC-PRM is accomplished through flow, storage, and energy economic penalty functions. Operational purposes represented by penalty functions included hydropower, water supply, flood control, navigation, recreation, and anadromous fish. The application was based on fifty year period-of-record with a monthly time interval. The HEC data storage system, HEC-DSS, was utilized extensively for data management and analysis of results.
