Optimization of the Firm Hydro Energy Capability for Hydroelectric Systems
In Chapter 5, we maximized the generation from hydroelectric power systems having a specified monthly load under critical water conditions. This load is equal to a certain percentage of the total generation at the end of each year of the critical period. The GWh for this load during each month varies according to the total generation at the end of the optimization period.
