Modeling and Optimization of a Multireservoir Power System for Critical Water Conditions
The period in which reservoirs are drawn down from full to empty is referred to as the “critical period,” and the stream flows that occur during the critical period are called “critical period stream flow” because they are the lowest on record. The duration of the critical period is determined by the amount of reservoir storage in the hydroelectric system and on the amount of energy support available from thermal, gas turbine plants, and possible purchase, and it depends on how these resources are committed to support the hydroelectric system.
