Chance-Constrained Linear Programming Method in Determining The Reservoir Storage Capacity and Operation Policy

Authors: Recep YURTAL

Abstract: Chance-Constrained Linear Programming method with the Linear Decision Rule (LDR) has been used for estimating the capacity and operation policy of a reservoir since 1969. Two version of the methods and their algorithm for direct solutions have been given in the references. In this study, a computer program was developed for the method. The program can solve the problem by both the direct and simplex methods. This computer model was applied to several reservoirs in the Seyhan Basin and the results obtained were compared to other widely used methods' solutions.
