Résumé: Short-term hydro generation optimal scheduling of cascade hydropower stations is a typical nonlinear programming problem that minimises the deviation between the produced power and the grid requirement while satisfying hydraulic and electrical constraints. In this work, thé main objective is to find thé optimal hourly water discharge rate of each hydro station in a multi-reservoir System to minimize the power deficit. The demanded load is then distributed among thé working units of three cascade hydropower stations constructed on Litaini River - Lebanon: Markaba, Awali and Charles Helou. To achieve our goal, methods involving and joining data mining and mathemat-ical programming will serve as a base for a Decision Support Tool (DST). Based on the DST features, a distributed control structure is implemented using a multiple software framework. MATLAB is used for mathematical optimization while LabVIEW is employed to develop Human Machine Interface (HMI) for sequential control
