The optimal scheduling figure is an important means to realize the maximal comprehensive benefit of the reservoir. Based on the ideas of reservoir normal operation graph, the paper puts forward to combined optimal method of drawing optimal scheduling figure, the method presets lines and outputs first, and then ascertains scheduling line number, location and the outputs of each dispatch areas by progressive optimization algorithm (POA) using historical data. Case study shows the method has good optimization performance, and strong maneuverability and practicability.
