Hydropower plant production optimization

Based on hydrological forecast and the expected energy prices, power production can be optimized under the given physical, ecological and legal constraints. One of the largest hydropower plants in Europe required such optimization so we have developed an optimization solution. This solution is based on a hydraulic model and hydrological forecast, transformed into the river elevations and flow rates. Together with a hydropower plant operation models it gives a comprehensive hydraulic-hydropower mathematical model, a foundation of our versatile tool for simulation based power production optimization.
