Integrated Water on Resources Management in Large River Basins
Webinar on Integrated Water on Resources Management in Large River Basins Based on Simulation Modeling and Optimization Methods
The water resources management, as for isolated reservoirs and for cascades of integrated reservoirs, is an iterative process of integrated decision-making concerning to complicated problem: how to use and change of water resources and associated territories within a certain geographic region.
The main principles of the management process are: a systematic approach; stakeholder partnership; accounting of the uncertainty (stochasticity) of a number of influencing factors; basin (geographic) approach and reliance on serious scientific research and reliable data.
Based on the fundamental principles, it can be concluded that the methods of water reservoir management are mainly determined by the use of computer technology (mathematical simulation models) to solve practical problems. The basic methods have been used for water resources management, are imitation, optimization and multi-criteria analysis.
All types of optimization models (deterministic or probabilistic, static or dynamic, linear or nonlinear) have a general concept: these models describe situations with many solutions that satisfy all limits, and it is required to find a set of the best solutions.
The selection of the optimization models should be based on the specific type of their application, for example formation of the best modes of operation of reservoirs, taking into account the conflict of interests of water users. At the same time, the quality of optimal water resources management is assessed by statistical and multicriteria analysis methods.
One of the ways to solve problems on integrated water management effectively is the implementation and development of the mathematical models and putting them into operation practice.
