Abstract:

Development and implementation of viable operating rules are among the most important aspects of decisions made in reservoir system management. Hydrologic Engineering Centers Prescriptive Reservoir Model HEC-PRM is used to suggest reservoir system operations optimized explicitly for quantitative statements of system operating objectives. Previous studies tested the feasibility of applying HEC-PRM to aid the System Operation Review and analyzed and compared three system operation alternatives. This study improved the model1s representation of the Columbia River system, analyzed and developed strategic operating rules for the system, and explored the application of HEC-PRM to seasonal operations.
